% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

From 1974 to 1986, Bill Russell was the Dodgers’ shortstop.   It was Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, Ron Cey and Russell who made up that wonderful infield.   

The Dodgers won the NL pennant in 1974, 1977, and 1978.   LA finally won in 1981!

Russell broke with LA in 1969 and became the regular shortstop in 1972.   He retired in 1986 with 1,926 hits and a .263 batting average.

We will remember Russell and the other 3 as that steady Dodgers’ infield:  they combined for 21 All-Star game appearances!
