Dodgers History: The Best Dodgers to Wear No. 23

Claude Osteen (1965-1973)
When one thinks of the Dodgers’ dominant pitching in the 1960s, the first thing that comes to mind are Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale.

Osteen was acquired during the pennant race of 1965 to round out the pitching staff, helping the Dodgers win the World Series against the Minnesota Twins that year.

He pitched in the World Series the next year, as well, in the Dodgers losing effort to the Baltimore Orioles.

Osteen was a three-time All-Star with the Dodgers and his 147 wins are fourth all-time in L.A. Dodgers history.

Osteen had 196 wins a career 3.30 ERA in 18 seasons in the big leagues.
