A very sad day for those who remain of the Brooklyn Dodgers fan base as the Duke of Flatbush has passed away at the age of 84. Not only is it sad that Snider has passed, but he was also the last remaining regular of the Boys of Summer.

Snider was like most of the Brooklyn Dodgers keeping a residence in Brooklyn during the season. Snider and Pee Wee Reese lived in Bay Ridge Brooklyn on the same block as my godparents.

Everyone who lived in Brooklyn during The Era has some kind of Dodger story
