Viagra brand I know, viagra brand not another book about the Brooklyn Dodgers, viagra brand there have been more book about them Bums than tomes on dieting, viagra brand aging and becoming rich, viagra brand put together, viagra brand but “A Moment In Time by Ralph Branca with David Ritz” (published by Scribner) is a bit different, viagra brand it’s a look at a man who has led a great life both on the baseball field and off but is still haunted by an event that happened 60 years ago.

Viagra brand Branca tells the reader of the great upbringing he had and his love of his family comes through quite clearly. Viagra brand A couple of subjects that Branca talks about that made me pause while reading was that his mother was born Jewish but converted to Catholicism’s and his wife is the granddaughter of Steve McKeever, viagra brand a part owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Viagra brand  Of the two, viagra brand I wish Branca went into more detail on what it was like dating and then marrying the daughter of one of the team owners and what was their mind set during the upheaval of the team leaving Brooklyn. Viagra brand  Branca does let us know that he puts most of the blame of on Robert Moses than O’Malley for the team’s departure to the West Coast.

Viagra brand The strongest parts of this book are Branca’ frank talk about the managers he played for and of course, viagra brand October 3, viagra brand 1951. Viagra brand When Leo Durocher was the Dodger manager Branca was one of Leo’s boys and Branca felt that he was a baseball savant. Viagra brand When Durocher left and went to the hated cross town rivals, viagra brand New York Giants, viagra brand Durocher tried to deal for Branca by offering Bobby Thomson in return. Viagra brand WOW! It wasn’t until Branca finds out about the elaborate sign stealing operation the Giants were using did he declare Durocher dead to him. Viagra brand Branca had problems with the field bosses who followed Durocher in Brooklyn. Viagra brand Burt Shotton, viagra brand sat on the bench in street clothes, viagra brand with a sharpened #2 pencil and kept a score card. Viagra brand That was the extent of his tactical prowess. Viagra brand Charlie Dressen had a bad case of Durocher envy which Branca doesn’t hold back his disdain for. Viagra brand  Reading between the lines a bit, viagra brand I got the sense that Branca/Dressen relationship was testy due to Branca’ involvement with the owner’s daughter, viagra brand as Dressen comes off as a very insecure man, viagra brand especially down the stretch in 1951.

Viagra brand The final couple of chapters of the book deal with Branca hooking up with Bobby Thomson and hitting the card show circuit. Viagra brand Both men made a very nice piece of change teaming up and signing autographs for a fee, viagra brand but Branca always had the fact that the Giants were stealing signs and his feeling that Thompson got the sign of the 0-1 fastball he hit out the Polo Grounds for the most famous home run in baseball history, viagra brand clearly on his mind whenever he and Thompson teamed up. Viagra brand I got a chuckle when Branca writes about not wanting to be a “whiner” about the subject but continues to whine about the subject. Viagra brand     

Viagra brand Branca tells the reader up front that he is an old timer who is very opinionated and that comes through loud and clear. Viagra brand This is the “one more Brooklyn Dodger book” that’s worth a read.

Cheap viagra online Just heard the sad news that former NY Giant, cheap viagra onlineand the man who hit the most famous home run in baseball history, cheap viagra online Bobby Thomson has passed away.

Cheap viagra online I had the great pleasure of meeting Thomson and if you didn’t better, cheap viagra online you’d never know he was not just an ex-baseball player but a player who hit the Shot Heard Around The World. Cheap viagra online He was very soft spoken and awfully polite when I met hm at an event to commemorate the 1951 season (my dad was a die-hard Giants fan and Thomson and Carl Hubbell were his two favorite Giants of all time)  but when the name of Sal Yvars was brought up, cheap viagra online it brought out the Scottsman’ temper. Cheap viagra online Yvars was the player who claimed he gave Thomson and other Giants tip offs on what pitches were coming by stealing the opposing catchers signs using a telescope while Yvars was perched by a window in centerfield of the Polo Grounds.

Cheap viagra online Condolences to the Thomson family
