Will he again claim that O’Malley deserves the credit for the hiring of Jackie Robinson to play for the Dodgers, and blame it on the interviewer getting his comments wrong, as he did in a number of articles, a few years back?! As we all know, it was Branch Rickey who deserves all the credit for our luck in 1948! Though Schweiger means well, he is also clueless about southern Brooklyn, especially Bensonhurst, Borough Park, Flatbush, and our beloved Sheepshead Bay, and its’ environs! One of Marty’s cronies, whose been in this seat too long, and typically, now resides, you should excuse the expression, in Park Slope!
