THE ERA. . .
Walter O'Malley's stunning move in 1958 to the sunny climes of Southern California transformed the beloved Bums of Brooklyn into the wildly successful Los Angeles Dodgers. Following Horace Greeley's credo, Major League Baseball went west and the City of Angels went major league. Lady in the Locker Room tells the inside story of those tumultuous years when the transplanted Dodgers went from a next-to-last place finish in their inaugural year to a World Series championship the next. In vivid detail the author recalls the ball club's early Los Angeles history, beginning with its much-derided makeshift ballpark at the mammoth Memorial Coliseum to its ultimate destination at beautiful Dodger Stadium, the Taj Mahal of its day.
Filled with intimate stories --- many of which have never before been published --- Lady in the Locker Room will delight readers of all ages and interests.
