Just Talking It Up is always fun. Always informative. And, always right!

Welcome to part 2 of a 2-part series with Mr. Erskine….

This week’s guest is former MLB player Carl Erskine. Carl Erskine is a former right-handed starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played his entire career for the Brooklyn & Los Angeles Dodgers from 1948 through 1959. He was a pitching mainstay on Dodger teams which won five National League pennants, peaking with a 1953 season in which he won 20 games and set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts. He pitched two of the NL’s seven no-hitters during the 1950s. Following his baseball career, he was active as a business executive and an author. He also played with Jackie Robinson for the majority of his career.
