Russell Martin's middle-namesake is Coltrane - perfect! There's a great chapter in here on the best names in Dodger history. Good info in general, but there are way too few things "to do" included in the list. One of the best bits of inside imagery: the locker room after final 1951 game. Press was locked out for an hour. Only silence and bursts of cursing experienced. When doors opened, ripped uniforms and whiskey bottles scattered on the floor.

If you're not a Dodgers fan, I can't see you enjoying this book. But as I am a Dodgers fan, it felt like required reading. I'm glad I read it. I learned a lot about the team I didn't know before. I learned more about things I only had passing knowledge of. Not every entry is amazing and some of it feels out of date, but it was well worth my time to read.

For me, this book was definitely a five-star experience, but I'm tempering my enthusiasm because I know everyone isn't quite as passionate about the Dodgers as I am... :-) What a fun book, though! Lots of Dodgers history, interesting stories I'd never heard, and Jon Weisman's deeply human writing holding it all together...

I am perhaps biased, but Jon bleeds Dodgers blue, and he's a lyrical writer too! A must for Dodgers fans (and Giants fans).

Great book, but skipped the chapter on Pee Wee Reese because I already read 99 others and don't want to die.

Exactly what I thought it would be. Amazed on how much I actually knew! A must read for all Dodger fans.
