Daily Conlon: 379 through 387

Here are todays Daily Conlon cards numbered 379 through 387. Unfortunately, no one is featured in a Dodger uniform, but there is one former Dodger in the bunch.

Johnny Allen (located in the middle row, far right) played for Brooklyn for only 3 of his 13 Major League seasons. He did well in Blue, going 18-7 with a 3.21 ERA. True story, via wikipedia:
While working as a bellhop in a hotel, he was told to take some fans to the room of Yankee scout Paul Krichell. Allen told Krichell that he was a pitcher, and the scout arranged a tryout.
That's what I call good fortune.
