I was lucky enough to ask former all star Jerry Reuss a few questions. Jerry played for eight teams and even threw a no hitter in his magnificent career. I always think of him as a Brewer. He had a few different baseball cards wearing the Brew Crew garb, but he was best remembered as a Dodger to most. Jerry is still involved in baseball. Currently, he is broadcasting some games for the Las Vegas 51’s. He has an awesome website to check out. Hope you all enjoy this interview and stay tuned because I have a couple more in the works.
