A personal Letter from Gil Hodges

Probably one of my favorite finds when it comes to auctions are personal letters written by old-time Dodgers.  They add a great dimension to player who you only really knew from afar.  It's like having an opportunity to see a little bit of their personality.

Well, Clean Sweep Auctions just closed a recent offering that included this great letter by Gil Hodges, and I thought I would share it here.  It is written to a Mort (I am unsure if this is a fan or a fellow ballplayer) and it includes some Baseball content.  Below is a snippet.  See the auction item here.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your kind letter.  I certainly enjoyed being in Arlington and meeting so many wonderful people.

Good luck in the coming baseball season. I'm pulling for a pennant for you as well as the Dodgers. Win, lose or draw I'm sure the boys will gain a lot about baseball and fair play, just being under your care.

My Best To You and Your Family
Gil Hodges
