Baseball fans, how much Dodgers history do you know?

Test your knowledge of the National League club that got its start on the East Coast and currently plays out West.

2. Which one of the following players has not had his uniform number retired by the Dodgers?

The Dodgers have never retired the No. 6 of first baseman Steve Garvey, because he is not in baseball’s Hall of Fame. Yet as a Dodger Garvey was the 1974 National League MVP, a 10-time All-Star, and the winner of four Gold Gloves. The San Diego Padres did retire his number, despite playing only the last five years of his 19-year career with them.
