Dodger Greats, Then and Now: Freddie Freeman and Gil Hodges

Welcome to an offseason series we’re calling Dodger Greats, Then and Now. Many of this year’s Dodgers had excellent individual seasons (with a few exceptions, of course) despite the dramatic ending, so we’re taking a look at how their historical counterparts performed in banner seasons of their own. This exercise isn’t meant to declare a winner at each position and crown anyone “the best” — it’s more of a look at how the game has changed over the decades, and a preview of who we might expect to see in future conversations of Dodger legends. Here we go, and feel free to drop suggestions for a future article in the comments.

Gil Hodges, Of Bridge Fame, Makes It To Cooperstown

Gil Hodges, namesake for the Marine Parkway Bridge, and a legend of New York baseball, was officially inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame this week.

Gil Hodges and the Hall of Fame

It has taken 50 years to admit this Brooklyn Dodger into the hall of fame. He did not do drugs, cheat or whine, he served in the Marines during World War II. He had the stats and the talent but for some reason he did not have the votes. He managed the “the miracle Mets” to a World Series championship. I am elated to see this in my lifetime. There is something wrong with the system. Being a fellow Brooklynite there actually some good news in todays paper. We Gil thank you so much for letting me watch you in Ebbets field, and showing me as a kid, that talent and manners can coexist.
