" Pee Wee Reese told me how good Dolph Camilli was. He said Camilli was an outstanding first baseman, the best the Dodgers had until Gil Hodges came along. I met Camilli after the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles . His son, Doug , was a catcher who came up through the Dodgers ' farm system and was my teammate for a few seasons, and Dolph would come to the ballpark to see Doug . I was struck by the fact that Dolph had so much power for such a little guy - only 5'10" and about 185 pounds - but he was strong." - Hall of Famer Duke Snider in Few and Chosen Dodgers: Defining Dodgers Greatness Across the Eras (Phil Pepe, Triumph Books, 04/01/2006, Page 21)

Dolph Camilli played twelve years (1933-1945) in the major leagues and strung together an impressive streak of eight consecutive seasons with 20-or-more home runs (1935-42).

During that decade (1935-1945), only one National League player hit more home runs than Dolph (219 HRs), hall of famer Mel Ott , who had two-hundred ninety-nine homers. The next two were hall of famer Johnny Mize (184 Hrs) and Joe Medwick (161 HRs).

In 1941 , Dolph Camilli was the National League home run champion ( Top 25 ) and runs batted in leader ( Top 25 ), two-thirds of a Triple Crown , and for his efforts, the Baseball Writers Association of America honored Dolph with a Most Valuable Player Award , the first Dodgers player to receive the honor!
