Summary Gil Hodges Gil Hodges characters ↠ 7 Mort Zachter â 7 Download In descriptions of athletes the word “hero” is bandied about and liberally attached to players with outstanding statistics and championship rings Gil Hodges A Hall of Fame Life is the story of a man who epitomized heroism in its truest meaning holding values and personal interactions to be of utmost importance throughout his life on the diamond as a marine in World War II and in his personal and civic life A New York City icon and with the Brooklyn Dodgers one of the finest first basemen of all time Gil Hodges 1924–72 managed the Was. What a great book about a great lifeGilbert Ray Hodges 1924 1972 only spent 48 years on this earth but he accomplished much in that short term thirty months of service in the United States Marines during World War II service that earned him the Bronze Star a loving marriage of almost a uarter century that produced four children and a Hall of Fame career as a major league baseball player and manager The fact that the institution in Cooperstown hasn t recognized this man s true stature yet does nothing to diminish the continuing affection and respect for Hodges that spans generations of fansHodges is best remembered as the power hitting graceful fielding first baseman for the Brooklyn Dodgers of the Boys of Summer era and as the manager of the Miracle Mets of 1969 among the most improbable champions ever He also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Mets and managed the Washington Senators before coming homeI ve read just about every book that s been published about the Dodgers of this era and Hodges and while each has its merits Mort Zachter s splendid book is distinguished by fluid writing and deep research He tracked down people who knew Hodges in his youth in Indiana who served with him in the Marines and who played with for and against him The result is a portrait of great richness and a thematic unity that focuses on the impact Hodges had on the lives of others Zachter also provides just enough game action to tell the story of pivotal moments in his playing and managing careers without burying the reader in an avalanche of detailThis book gave me a deeper appreciation of Hodges gifts as a manager Not only was a far seeing strategist he was also a great psychologist and teacher No wonder every player on those Miracle Mets even those who didn t get along with him very well ultimately credited him with their success Yet Hodges himself discounted his own contributions not surprising for a man of high integrity and great modesty He always preferred for others to be in the spotlight that probably goes a long way to explain his absence from Cooperstown Hopefully the leadership there will see the error of their ways at some point and give him his due Until then fans who remember his glory days with the Dodgers and Mets have their memories and younger generations can learn about this underappreciated man whose time with us was too short but whose presence abides
