Gil Hodges Finally Gets in the Hall of Fame

5 Dec

Looking at his playing career alone, Gil was a Hall of Famer what with 8 All-Star appearances, 3 Gold Gloves and 9 HOF caliber seasons. But managing the ’69 Mets to a World Series championship should’ve put him over the top and in the Fame a long time ago. Either way, congratulations to the Hodges family and all the Mets/Dodgers fans who long campaigned for Hodges to get in the HOF along the way.
