Identify This Pitcher This fellow doesn't look like a Hall of Fame pitcher--but he is. He got a very late start in his career but he was thoroughly dominant for the Brooklyn Dodgers when the Dodgers weren't especially good. Can you name him?

My First Car  What Memories When I graduated high school I got two things, my driver's license, and this car, a 1963 Dodge Dart GT. My dad reluctantly helped me buy it by giving me the down payment, he said it was too sporty and I would wind up hot rodding around town. Me?? I put a white racing stripe down the center of the hood and the trunk, all the rage back then. My best friend and I had a ball! When I started dating Larry, he took it off, and my dad was so happy. Damn men...

Pulitzer Prize-Nominated Sports Photo The agony of defeat! This is one of the great sports photos ever taken. The despondent baseball player hiding his face is Brooklyn Dodgers' pitcher Ralph Branca who had just surrendered Bobby Thomson's famous home run that gave the New York Giants the 1951 National League pennant. The other Dodger is Cookie Lavagetto.

1957 Brooklyn Dodgers To some embittered Brooklyn baseball fans, the Dodgers ceased to exist after the 1957 season. Here is the baseball card of that last Dodger team to call Ebbets Field home.

Ebbets Field Scoreboard Hit sign win suit! The famous scoreboard at Brooklyn's Ebbets field shows a Dodgers-Pirates game in progress with the Dodgers enjoying a comfortable 7-2 lead. Pittsburgh is rallying in the top of the seventh inning, though, as Dodger right fielder Carl Furillo has to play a Pirate hit off the scoreboard. (I did some research; I determined this game was played on Sunday, September 30, 1956. It was the final game of the 1956 regular season at Ebbets Field. The Dodgers hung on to win 8-6. This was the last regular season game Jackie Robinson ever played. He hit a solo home run in the third inning.)

1920 World Series Program This very appealing baseball program is from the 1920 World Series between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Cleveland Indians. (Cleveland won the best-of-nine series in seven games.) What I find interesting as a baseball historian is that the program clearly calls the Brooklyn club the Dodgers. Most reference books call the 1920 team the Robins. That name derived from their manager, Wilbert Robinson, who was pictured on the program's cover. I guess the proud nickname 'Dodgers' had already stuck to Brooklyn's beloved baseball team.

Baseball Hitting Famine 1968 This 1968 issue of Sports Illustrated discussed the 'hitting famine' in Major League Baseball. The offensive dearth reached its depths during the 1968 season, which baseball historians rightfully call 'the year of the pitcher.' That season Don Drysdale set a new record for consecutive shutout innings pitched. Bob Gibson's ERA was a ridiculous 1.12. Carl Yastrzemski won the American League batting title with a mere .301 average. The decline in offense can be traced back to 1962 when MLB allowed teams to raise the pitching mound beyond its rulebook height of 15 inches, if they so desired. (It was done as a knee-jerk reponse to the the big home run season of 1961.) However, the new height of the mound gave the pitchers a huge edge. The mound at Dodger Stadium was reputedly 20 inches high in the heyday of Sandy Koufax and Drysdale. The decline in offense adversely affected attendance. The hitting famine era ended when the pitcher's mound was reduced to its modern height of ten inches in 1969.

Jackie Robinson - First Home Run Here's a bit of baseball history: This news photo captures Jackie Robinson touching home plate after hitting his first major league home run. The date was April 18, 1947. The site was the Polo Grounds; it was the New York Giants' 1947 home opener. Robinson's homer came in the top of the third inning off Giants' pitcher Dave Koslo. The blow gave the visiting Brooklyn Dodgers a short-lived 2-1 lead. The Giants went on to win the game 10-4. Shaking Robinson's hand is #17 Tommy Tatum (who played only four games for Brooklyn in 1947). The Giants' catcher is #5 Walker Cooper.
