Yesterday, I reviewed the book "Carl Furillo: Brooklyn Dodgers All-Star". The author of the book, Ted Reed, will be making an appearance at the Brooklyn Historical Society this Saturday at 2:00 pm, along with Carl Furillo Jr.
Ted Reed, a veteran reporter and author of the new book Carl Furillo: Brooklyn Dodgers All-Star, will speak about Furillo’s career and two little-explored events that have shaped perceptions of the Dodgers right-fielder: Furillo's supposed opposition to Jackie Robinson joining the Dodgers and Furillo's suit against the Dodgers for injuries. Judith Testa, a former college professor and author of Sal Maglie: Baseball’s Demon Barber, will speak about the twists and turns in the relationship between Furillo and Maglie.If anyone in the New York area is interested, the event is free with museum admission ($6 adults, $4 students, teachers, seniors, free for children under 12).
