Gil Hodges


1954 Topps Baseball Card

Gil was a muscular 6-foot-2, 200-pounder who played 18 major league seasons before becoming a manager. He was the National League's All-Star first baseman eleven times, and he played on seven pennant-winning Dodger teams in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. In New York and especially Brooklyn, Hodge was a hero to millions of loyal fans. He hit 370 home runs in his career. Fourteen were grand-slam homers, still a National League record. For seven consecutive seasons Gil drove in more than 100 runs, reaching a high of 130. He played in 2,071 games in the majors and finished with a lifetime batting average of .273. ~ Great Infielders of the Major Leagues, 1972
