Dodgers History: The Best Dodgers to Wear No. 23

Eric Karros (1991-2002)
Karros was drafted by the Dodgers in 1988 out of UCLA, and was called-up in Sept. 1991, and would go on to win the NL Rookie of the Year in 1992.

Karros is the all-time L.A. Dodgers leader in home runs with 270, and was a steady fixture at first base for the Dodgers throughout the 1990s, winning a silver-slugger in 1995, and hitting 30+ HRs and 100+ RBIs in four of five consecutive seasons from 1995-1999.

Perhaps his best all-around season was in 1999 when Karros had career highs with a .304 average, 34 HRs and 112 RBIs.

Despite all those numbers, Karros never played in an All-Star game.

Karros was traded to the Chicago Cubs after the end of the 2002 season.

EK can currently be seen broadcasting MLB games on Fox.
