Former Brooklyn Dodger George “Shotgun” Shuba passed away today at his home in Ohio, according to news reports. He was 89.

Shuba was one of the last surviving members of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers team that won their only World Series title.

Bob Borkowski, Roger Craig, Carl Erskine, Sandy Koufax, Tommy Lasorda and Don Newcombe are all that remain, and only Craig, Erskine and Newcombe appeared in the World Series.
