Thread Name: BS: I Like Baseball
Subject: RE: BS: I Like Baseball
In 1960, my family moved from the LA area back to the place of my birth in Kentucky. The only piece of California that I really clung to was the Dodgers. My God, what a team. I lived and died with them in those classic World Series' with the hated Yankees. What hitting...Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Maury Wills. And the pitching! Don Drysdale, Larry Sherry, and the greatest of all time, Sandy Koufax! I was one rabid 11 year old fan, my eyes focussed on that old black and white screen, willing the Dodgers to win. And you know, despite all that talent, I'm really not sure they could have done it without me.
