Reading Baseball: Remembering the 1952 Rickey Dinks

Oct 9, 2020

Former SIU baseball player Derek Shelton just finished his first season as a major league manager.

In this edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson says – unfortunately for him and Shelton – the season went about as he expected…a last place finish for his Pittsburgh Pirates.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, author of Growing Up With Clemente and co-author, with his son Stephen, of the forthcoming book The Turnpike Rivalry: The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns.
