Baseball and BBQ Episode #108: Irene Hodges and Gary Mack Share Their Reflections and Thoughts on Gil Hodges
Show Notes

Continuing our attempt to right a long-time wrong, episode 108 features Irene Hodges and Gary Mack as they provide compelling arguments for finally inducting Gil Hodges into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

Irene Hodges is the oldest daughter of Gil Hodges.  She was only 20 years old when Gil Hodges passed away, but has many wonderful memories and stories regarding her father.  She would like to see her father enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame, but she feels especially awful for the many fans who push to get him in and are continuously met with disappointment.  Irene is a delightful person to speak with, and she gave great insight into Gil Hodges which goes beyond the player and manager that most fans are familiar with.

Gary Mack is the long-time host of the Mets Musings podcast, as well as hosting the golf related podcast, Chip Shots, and serving as co-host on The Baseball Talk Radio Show along with Rich Baxter.  He has loved the New York Mets since their 1962 inception and has many reasons as to why Gil Hodges should be elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  He has been a frequent contributor to this podcast, and we appreciate the insight he provides.
