Growing Up A Dodger
by Dave Poalillo
Growing Up a Dodger is the story of one avid fan’s love of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Author Dave Poalillo began following the team as a kid in the late ‘40s and stayed loyal until they moved to Los Angeles in 1958. His favorite player was Duke Snider, and he wore Snider’s number – No. 4 – in little league and pony league baseball.
Poalillo wanted to write about the team to share his memories of their heydays and to celebrate their hard-won championship win.
