He was a constant presence at Dodger Stadium and players always gravitated to him for his endless advice and leadership. The Dodgers meant everything to him and we are all fortunate he was part of our lives.Newcombe, like Dodgers teammate Jackie Robinson, was signed by Branch Rickey from the Negro Leagues and went on to make a huge mark in the major leagues.Newcombe joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1949, winning 17 games en route to a Rookie of the Year award as he helped lead the team to the National League pennant. His pitching career was interrupted by military service for two years, when he served in the Korea in 1952-53. He returned to the Dodgers in 1954. Two years later, he won the Cy Young Award and was named National League MVP.Newk was a fierce presence on the mound, a 6-foot-4 and 225-pound bear of a man who stared down hitters and backed up anyone foolish enough to crowd the plate.

We knew the impact we were attempting would have. We had to endure. Robinsons character, his backbone, his guts -- those were the keys. Jackie was the leader under Mr. Rickey.The three talked frequently, Campanella and Newcombe from the Dodgers Nashua, New Hampshire, farm team and Robinson from Brooklyn.We talked about how things were going, Newcombe said. What if somebody charged the mound on me What would I do Nobody did.I remember in the New England league, a catcher threw dirt in Roys face. He said, If you do that again, Ill personally take your arm out of its socket. They challenged us. They did anything they could to break down the idea.Newcombes Dodgers were perennial also-rans, who specialized in winning the National League pennant then losing the World Series to the Yankees. Newcombe played on three pennant winners with the Dodgers and the World Series champions in 1955, the year they finally beat the Yankees.He is survived by his wife, Karen children Don Newcombe Jr., Kelly Roxanne Newcombe and Brett Anthony Newcombe and grandchildren Cayman and Riann.Photo Credit: Getty Images This story uses functionality that may not work in our app. Click here to open the story in your web browser.
