By Carl Erskine

"I've had a pretty good success facing Stan (Musial) by throwing him my best pitch and backing up third base."

I'm thankful to the many fans who watched us win six pennants in my twelve big league years and who still write me - also young people who write and ask me about the Brooklyn years.

''I remember how tough he was, how strong he was, how consistent he was as a player. 'When he hit a single, it was a bullet. When he hit a homer, it was a rocket.
-- Erkine on fellow teammate, Carl Furillo


On Carl Erskine

"One time in spring training, we had the hit-and-run on, and Carl Erskine threw me a curve and I struck out into a double play. I came back to the bench and Casey [Stengel] said, 'next time, tra-la-la.' I didn't know what tra-la-la meant, but next time up, I hit a line drive, right into a double play. When I sat down, Casey came over and said, 'Like I told you, tra-la-la.'"
-- Whitey Herzog
