Jim Gilliam – the Dodgers first utility player

As a youngster growing up on the east coast of Canada in the 1950’s I fell in love with the Brooklyn Dodgers. There was just so much to love – Duke, Campy, Jackie, Newk, the two Carl’s, Gil, Pee Wee and the list goes on. Don Drysdale was just starting to come into his own […]
