Back in 1955, Koufax was competing to make the Dodgers roster along with another left-handed pitcher, Tommy Lasorda. That is why Tommy always tells the story that it took the greatest lefthander to knock him off the roster!

I have some other pictures of Sandy from the last time the Dodgers went to Fenway Park but they are at work and I don’t go back to work until January 4th, 2010!!
Happy Birthday Sandy!
Everyone here at the MLBlogsphere, have a wonderful new year!
