What you and I both expected came to fruition when Gil Hodges was not inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame by the veterans committee; in fact, no players from the Golden Era were elected.
An eight-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner, Hodges was instrumental in leading the Dodgers to seven NL pennants and two World Series titles.
To Mets’ fans, he’ll always be the recalled as the manager who guided the team to the 1969 World Series championship.
Unfortunately, that’s not enough for the voters. Damn.
