NEW DODGERS PHOTO HISTORY BOOK IS PUBLISHED
The Los Angeles Dodgers club has published a great new photo book called Dodgers From Coast to Coast, The Official Visual History of the Dodgers. The coffee-table book, compiled by team historian Mark Langhill, traces the history of the Dodgers franchise back to its beginnings in Brooklyn in pictures and words. I wrote the chapter on the start of the club in Brooklyn in 1883 through the early 1900s when Charles Ebbets took over as owner. The book’s introduction is by legendary Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully and the preface is by legendary manager Tommy Lasorda. The book will go on sale April 10 online and at opening day at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, the 50th anniversary of the first game at the stadium. It’s a must for Dodgers fans everywhere.
