Dodger Correspondence: Gordon "Babe" Phelps

After a short hiatus I'm back with another Dodger Correspondence letter from Gordon "Babe Phelps. Below he writes back to fan naming his Baseball idol.
"I guess my idol would have to be Lou Gehrig. What a small guy he was. When he passed away, I though I had lost a great friend, although he was in the American League.

We use to have a lot of talks? together while we were in Spring Training and I sure did appreciate it."
Babe Phelps was one of the more colorful Dodgers to ever play the game. Read all about him here in his SABR biography.
