COLUMBIA CITY â€“ With Opening Day for Major League Baseball this week, it was only fitting that a former National League player â€śtoe the rubberâ€ť at the Columbia City Rotary Club.
Carl Erskine, who is from Anderson, came and spoke to the Rotarians at their last meeting.
Erskine starred for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1948-1956, and moved west to L.A. with the team in 1957, finally retiring in 1959.
He finished with 122 wins in his career. He tossed a pair of no-hitters and was on the first Dodger team to ever win the World Series (1955).
