On this day in 1935 a Jewish child of imminent importance to Dodger history was born. He was raised in Brooklyn's Borough Park, and would go on to be a part of 4 Dodgers World Championship teams. As a reminder of his greatness, he gained entry into the Hall of Fame as its youngest ever member.
Sandy Koufax turns 78 today. Happy Birthday, Sandy!
Beyond all of the accolades that he deserves, I thought this birthday message from Dodger outfielder Scott Van Slyke was the best... if not most hilarious.
Happy birthday to Sand the man, even though you repeatedly tried to talk to me about pitching#imnotwithrow
