Update on Gil Hodges

Posted by Will Suphan on Monday, January 22nd 2018:

He will be eligible for inclusion in the MLB Hall of Fame in 2020 when the Golden Era Committee meets.
His stats compare favorably with the existing 22 players who are in the hall and primarily played 1B. In addition he managed the Miracle Mets of '69 which won the World Series. As far as character goes look no further than his Bronze Star for being an anti-aircraft gunner at Tinian and Okinawa with a Combat V for bravery under fire. He also won the first 3 Golden Glove awards which started in 1957, late in his career.
If he doesn't belong in the HOF then nobody does.
