I recently finished reading Carl Erksine's Tales from the Dodger Dugout. A delightful read in which the pitcher shares stories and remembrances from his playing days. The stories range in length from a few paragraphs to a few pages. This is not heavy reading. Your mind will not be taxed.
But, your heart will be warmed, your memory jogged and an occasional smile will come to your face.
Here's a scan of Carl's autograph from the front pages of the book.
If you need something to fill a quiet evening, this might be the book for you.
