I had a day off and woke up to news that Jerry Reuss was signing autographs at a US Bank in Panorama City sponsored by ESPN LA. I arrived about 11 o'clock and Mr. Reuss started to sign about 12 noon. He was so very gracious and when I had mentioned that I had reviewed his book Bring in the Right-Hander, he really lit up. I also forgot to mention that he emailed us to thank us for reviewing the book.
Many thanks for the kind words regarding my book, Bring In the Right-Hander!When I first related the story to Vin a few years ago, he fondly recalled those days of some 40 years ago. Then he proceeded to tell me the story of how transistor radios played a large part in Dodger history.Hope you enjoyed the rest of my story and look forward to saying hello in person.Jerry Reuss
What a classy guy. I think this was the first time a Dodger has emailed us (that is emailed to thank us instead of asking where to serve that restraining order). They even had pizza and soda afterwards. Thanks to US Bank, ESPN LA, and Mr. Reuss for putting on this great event.
