Another Story from Howard Kellman

 

"You hear the same thing every year but that is because it is true.  In a short series, pitching is very dominant."

Former Dodger Pitcher Carl Erskine

Carl Erskine spent his entire 12 year Major League career with the Dodgers.  He was a 20 game winner in 1953 and an All-Star in 1954.

In Game 3 of the 1953 World Series, Carl struck out 14 New York Yankees, a World Series record. Sandy Koufax broke Carl's record in 1963 and in 1968, Bob Gibson broke Koufax's record.

In the 1950's, there were seven no-hitters thrown in the National League. Carl Erskine threw two of those seven.

The Brooklyn Dodgers won five Pennants and a World Championship (1955) during Carl's tenure there.  

In his post-playing days, Carl coached baseball at Anderson College for 12 years and he was President of Star Financial Bank.

book cover
"Howard Kellman has spent a lifetime in baseball, and through the stories in this book he teaches us valuable lessons such as: if a girl in a bar wants you to take her to Midnight Mass - do it, never use gasoline to dry a field, and always let your wife know when a game goes extra innings. Trust me, it will pay off."
- Howie Rose, Broadcaster, New York Mets
