On this episode of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast, Rick Elliott, the writer of "Clem Labine: Always a Dodger," will join me to welcome Brooklyn Dodgers 3rd baseman Randy "Ransom" Jackson! We'll discuss what his views of Brooklyn were before and after being traded from the Cubs to the Dodgers in Dec. '55, his views on Walter O'Malley, his feelings on being in the position of replacing an aging Jackie Robinson, and where he got that "Ransom" nickname. So, join us at 10:30am ET for the latest edition of the Bedford & Sullivan podcast!
