Carl Erskine's Tales from the Dodger Dugoutby Carl Erskine, Vin Scully
The famed Boys of Summer -- aka the Brooklyn Dodgers -- were some of baseball's most storied players. The group included superstars and Hall of Famers -- Duke Snider, Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges, Pee Wee Reese, and Jackie Robinson, Major League Baseball's first black player. Carl Erskine, another valuable member of the legendary team, has updated his classic stories and added new memories from his days as a Dodger, inviting you into the world of baseball in the 1940s and 1950s. Witness Jackie Robinson break the color barrier. Feel the excitement of a no-hitter. Laugh at their clubhouse and dugout antics. Experience baseball in a bygone era brought to life as only an eyewitness can. Erskine has often been asked, "Are all of your stories true?" And his standard response is, "Yes, I couldn't possibly make them up the way they actually happened."
