Biographical Information[edit]

Goody Rosen had two careers in the majors, both mainly with the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was up from 1937 to 1939 and then again from 1944 to 1946. It was all with Brooklyn except for a partial season in 1946 when he appeared in 100 games with the New York Giants. His career ended as a result of an injury with the Giants, suffered when he ran into a fence in the outfield. He had also been purchased by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1940 but never appeared in the majors with them.

Rosen, primarily a center fielder, had some decent seasons with the bat. His best one was 1945 when he hit .325 (third in the National League) with 279 total bases (second in the league) and 126 runs scored (also second in the league). He was named to the All-Star team that year.

He signed with the Rochester Red Wings in 1931 and was with the Louisville Colonels in 1933. He was with the Montreal Royals during part of the 1939 season and the Syracuse Chiefs from 1940-1944. After the majors he was with the Jersey City Skeeters and Toronto Maple Leafs.
