Former professional baseball pitcher Carl Daniel Erskine was born December 13, 1926 in Anderson, Indiana. The Brooklyn Dodgers signed Carl Erskine as an amateur free agent in 1946. Erskine would play with the Dodgers his entire 12-year career (1948-1959), following the team to Los Angeles in 1958.
A member of the Dodgers "Boys of Summer' teams that won five National League pennants in the 1950s and brought the Dodgers their first championship in the 1955 World Series. Erskine appeared in eleven World Series games and set a World Series record with 14 strikeouts in Game 3 of the 1953 Fall Classic. He pitched two no-hitters, the first against the Chicago Cubs on June 19, 1952 and the second on the New York Giants, May 12, 1956. Following his retirement as a player, Erskine returned to his native Indiana. Where he opened a successful insurance company and coached the Anderson University Raven baseball program for 12 years, winning four championship games. To commemorate Erskine's accomplishments both as a Dodger and as a citizen, a 6-foot (1.8 m) bronze statue was erected in front of the Carl D. Erskine Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Center. Erskine also donated part of his land to the Anderson Community School System to build a new school, which was named Erskine Elementary. Carl Erskine was inducted into the Indiana National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1979.
