Bobby Dorr

Robert Constant Dorr

May 17, 1917
Bellingham, WA

July 28, 2005
Bellingham, WA

1938-39 University of Washington (College)
1939-40 University of Washington (College)
1946-47 Bellingham Fircrests (PCBL)
1947-48 Bellingham Fircrests (PCBL)

Different guy than Oregon's own and Boston Red Sox legendary second baseman Bobby Doerr, and this leads to a lot of misdirection when searching the newspapers of the time. Both gentleman are essentially the same age and their names were in a lot of newspapers in the Pacific Northwest at the same time.

Dorr played basketball at UW, and later played a couple seasons for his hometown club, the Fircrests.
