1959 Topps

Kipp pitched in parts of three seasons for the Dodgers before finishing his career in the big leagues with a brief stint with the Yankees in 1960. He came up with Brooklyn in 1957 but pitched just one game. He saw considerably more action the following season, pitching in 40 games for the Dodgers during their first year in Los Angeles. He won six of those games, lost six others and registered one save. He threw 102.1 innings for the Dodgers, striking out 58 and walking 45. He finished the year with a 5.01 ERA.

Kipp’s questionnaire does not provide us with much information. Demeter was an outfielder on those Dodger teams Kipp played for. His first win came on April 25 when he threw 7.1 innings against St. Louis in a 5-3 Dodger win. He gave up nine hits in the game and struck out five. He also doubled and scored a run. Musial, his nemesis, had four hits and scored a run in the game.
