About this title

Synopsis:

Some refer to the early to mid-1960s as the Golden Age of baseball in Los Angeles. Not only did Tommy Davis, a Dodger from 1959-66 who was an integral part of two World Series championship teams, have the best seat in the house, the two-time All-Star left-fielder who twice led the National League in hitting was also the Dodgers' silent superstar. Relive exciting Dodger Blue memories from games at the oval-shaped Coliseum to the opening of Dodger Stadium as Davis recounts the fun and satisfaction of the championship seasons of 1963 and 1965 to the disappointment and sorrow of the team's famous collapse of 1962 and his career-altering ankle injury. Davis, along with several former teammates and Los Angeles Times sportswriter Paul Gutierrez, takes the reader on the field and into the clubhouse with his Tales from the Dodgers Dugout.

About the Author:

Paul Gutierrez, a sportswriter at the Los Angeles Times who has also worked in Las Vegas at the Review-Journal and in New York City at Sports Illustrated, grew up in the Southern California desert cutting Dodger game box scores out of newspapers and studying them as a stats-crazed kid. At the Times, he has covered Major League Baseball as well as college basketball, boxing and soccer. Gutierrez, 33, lives in Pasadena, CA, with his wife, Amy.
