Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lawrence Sherry (July 25, 1935 - December 17, 2006) was an American right-handed relief pitcher in Major League Baseball who spent most of his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers. He was named the Most Valuable Player of the 1959 World Series as the Dodgers won their first championship since relocating from Brooklyn just two years earlier. Sherry was born with clubfeet, for which he needed surgery as an infant and wore special shoes. He attended Fairfax High School in Los Angeles. From Los Angeles, California, Sherry made his debut with his hometown Dodgers on April 17, 1958 - just their third game after moving west. Adding to the pressure, the game was played on the road against their hated rivals, the San Francisco Giants, who had also relocated from New York City.show more
