Dodgers SI Cover Trivia Question

Okay, enough gloom about this week's SI cover. Instead, a pop quiz (no prize awarded; not related to the PCS). Before this week's issue, Manny Ramirez also graced the cover of SI on October 13, 2008 ("See Manny Run"), as shown above.

Prior to that, who was the most recent Dodger to be the featured (i.e., main) cover subject on an issue of SI? No cheating!

Gagne?

Kevin Brown? Really??? Yikes.

I remember one in the early 90s with Mike Piazza and a "Blue Plate Special" headline and I think there was one with Hideo Nomo when he came up in the mid 90s.

Kevin Brown? wow.

Winner! Man, that was fast. Well done...

Sorry, TB wins, it's indeed Brownie. Answer posts at half-past.

I happend to be looking up old SI covers on the SI website the other day and you can search by team...I remembered Brown becuase I was so surprised.

J. Steve said...

Why was Brown on the cover? Was it back when he signed his big contract?

TB said...

Yup, it was the baseball preview issue...

It might explain why I stopped reading that rag.

J. Steve said...

Wow. I have no memory of that cover whatsoever! I must've repressed it.
