Happy 95th birthday to Carl Erskine, who spent his entire career (1949-1959) with the Dodgers of both Brooklyn and Los Angeles. He still resides in his hometown of Anderson, Indiana. Among his milestones, "Oisk" threw two no-hitters for the Dodgers, pitched and drew the win in the Dodgers' first home game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and the RHP was a member of the team's 1955 (Brooklyn) and 1959 (L.A.) world championship teams. Also, he's one of the very few still alive who played for the Dodgers in both cities. What a career!

May we be posting about him hitting the century mark in another five years!

That is getting up there in longevity! I have heard there are just a handful of 1955 Dodgers still alive, none from the starting lineup.
