From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Richard Bernard "Dick" Littlefield (March 18, 1926 – November 20, 1997) was an American left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for nine teams between 1950 and 1958.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, he died there at age 71.

He is famous for having been traded (along with $30,000 cash) by the New York Giants to the Brooklyn Dodgers for Jackie Robinson on December 13, 1956.[1] However, Robinson refused to report to the Giants, choosing instead to retire, and the trade was voided.
