This season, before each home game, a former Dodger is seen signing autographs for fans outside the stadium between the pavillion entrances. Recently, I had a chance to pay a visit to former Dodger outfielder Tommy Davis. Tommy Davis played for the Dodgers from 1959-1966, winning 2 batting titles in ’62 and ’63. With this new feature dubbed autograph alley, I thought I would try something fun and do a one question Q & A this season with each former Dodger I visit. I hope you all enjoy this feature as a look forward to asking more questions throughout this season.
Q- Tommy, describe the feeling from being part of the 1963 team that swept the Yankees in the WS
A- It was heaven, it was absolute heaven. The Yankees had always beaten the Dodgers in WS play, had beaten them 4 times in the 50’s so for us to sweep them and be the first team to sweep the Yankees in WS play was absolute heaven.
