Dodgers great Don Newcombe has passed away.

Don Newcombe played for the Nashua (NH) Dodgers before his major league career began in Brooklyn. He and Roy Campanella were assigned to then AA Nashua, while Jackie Robinson was assigned to AAA Montreal. The story of the 3 of them and their impact on baseball is well known. The manager in Nashua was Walter Alston. He did pretty well too. The park where they played, Holman Stadium, is still in use, and the streets bordering the park are named Don Newcombe Way and Roy Campanella Way in their honor.

RIP Don Newcombe.
