Penguin Power

Penguin Power ›

By Ron Cey, With Ken Gurnick

Mention “The Penguin” to any Dodgers fan and you’re sure to evoke not just memories of the beloved third baseman Ron Cey, but also of the glory years of modern Dodgers baseball, a rollicking run through the '70s and '80s highlighted by the loquacious Tommy Lasorda, Fernandomania, a historic infield anchored by Cey, and an unforgettable 1981 World Series title.

In Penguin Power: Dodger Blue, Hollywood Lights, and a One-in-a-Million Big League Journey, “The Penguin” Ron Cey and veteran Dodgers scribe Ken Gurnick take fans on an amazing ride from Cey’s formative years in the Pacific Northwest through his stardom on and off the field in Los Angeles and beyond. 

As part of the longest running infield in MLB history, six-time All Star and 1981 co-World Series MVP Cey joined Steve Garvey, Davey Lopes, and Bill Russell to help the Dodgers triumph after years of postseason heartbreak, and bring the first World Series back to Los Angeles since Sandy Koufax and the Boys of Summer of 1965.

Featuring charming stories from Cey’s time in a memorable clubhouse alongside Dodger legends Lasorda, Garvey, and Fernando Valenzuela, with Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrín in the booth, as well as tales of the life of a star during a magical time in Los Angeles, Penguin Power is a must-read for fans of an unforgettable era of Dodgers baseball.
