Yankee Hall Of Famer Lefty Gomez: An American Odyssey
10/03/12 - Wednesday's Topical Currents features Veronica Gomez, the daughter of New York Yankee Hall-of-Fame pitcher and World Series hero, Lefty Gomez. His career bridged a unique baseball era: from 1932 to 1943. He arrived in New York during the Ruth/Gehrig era and as a veteran roomed with and helped groom the magical Joe DiMaggio. Gomez was known for his classic one liners and sense of humor but was a fierce competitor on the field. His book is Lefty: An American Odyssey.
