For those who bleed Dodger blue, Jon Weisman has a treat for you.

Author of “100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die” and “The Best of Dodger Thoughts,” the veteran sports journalist and writer explores the unmatched pitching legacy of his favorite MLB team in his latest book, “Brothers in Arms: Koufax, Kershaw, and the Dodgers’ Extraordinary Pitching Tradition.”

Weisman’s deep knowledge of the Dodgers surpasses statistical analysis. Through dozens of interviews with current and former players, coaches, and broadcasters — along with profiles of both fan favorites and underappreciated names — he dives into the teams rich history and how it’s shaped the entire franchise from the mound.

Weisman joins Larry Mantle on the making of the book and some good ol’ Dodger talk.

Jon Weisman will be talking about "Brothers in Arms" on MONDAY, June 18, at the Last Bookstore in Downtown. The event starts at 7pm.

Jon Weisman, author of “Brothers in Arms: Koufax, Kershaw, and the Dodgers’ Extraordinary Pitching Tradition” (Triumph Books 2018); he tweets @jonweisman
