Carl Erskine documentary premieres this week in Anderson


ANDERSON — "The Best We've Got: The Carl Erskine Story" will hold its world premiere screening on Thursday at the Paramount Theatre in Anderson, Carl's hometown.

Now 95-years-old, Carl won the 1955 World Series as a pitcher for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

He played with Jackie Robinson and pitched the team's very first game upon moving to Los Angeles.

His life had so much more after his baseball career.

Director Ted Green stopped by the WRTV studio to talk about Carl's legacy and the years-long process of putting this project together. You can watch Brad Brown's full conversation with Green below.
