RIP - Bill Sudakis

Bill Sudakis, one of the many young Dodgers' players from the late-60s/early-70s, passed away on September 15, 2021 at age 75.
Sudakis debuted in September 1968, and was the Dodgers' starting 3rd baseman in 1969, his only season as a regular.
In 1970 he was replaced by Bill Grabarkiewitz, who in turn was replaced by Steve Garvey and others the following season. Primarily a third baseman, he also caught quite a few games in 1970 and 1971.
Sudakis played for the Dodgers through the 1971 season, then bounced around to the Mets, Rangers, Yankees, Angels, and Indians from 1972-75.
