On Sunday, August 17th, Brooklyn Dodgers legend Carl Erskine will return to the borough, and visit KeySpan Park.

That night, Erskine will perform the National Anthem on his harmonica, and will be signing copies of his book, Tales from the Dodgers Dugout.  You must purchase a copy of the book to get an autograph.  In addition, the first 2,000 adults in attendance will receive a Carl Erskine bobblehead.

Erskine -- known to the Dodgers faithful as "Oisk" -- played his entire career for the Brooklyn & Los Angeles Dodgers from 1948 through 1959.  He was a pitching mainstay on Dodger teams which won five National League pennants, peaking with a 1953 season in which he won 20 games and set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts. He pitched two of the NL's seven no-hitters during the 1950s, and was a member of the world champion 1955 team.
