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
