"Oisk" Plays the National Anthem

At the Cyclones game last Sunday on his harmonica. Carl Erskine, "Oisk" as he was called by the Dodger faithful in the 50's was honored by having his number 17 retired by the Brooklyn Cyclones. Oisk pitched 2 no hitters in the bigs. He actually held the World Series strikeout record (14 Yankees 1953 World Series) until that was broken by Sandy Koufax in 1963. He was one of the legendary Boys of Summer. I didn't get all of it, and apologize for the hang-over shakes.
