‘Handy’ Andy Pafko – A Forgotten Dodger

Now that the Bobby Thompson home run has surfaced again, perhaps I can tease you one more time with a reference to that fateful hit in an article I wrote four years ago.

I trace my birth as a Dodger fan back to the 1952 season. Vin Scully and Duke Snider were the midwives in bringing me into the world of “Dodger Blue.” Vin’s voice captivated me one evening in 1952 when I turned the dial on my radio and accidentally came across a Dodgers broadcast. It was my first-ever baseball radio broadcast. I loved baseball as an 11-year-old and instantly was glued to the broadcast and that voice.
