Gil Hodges, the legendary Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers player and later manager of the Washington Senators and the New York “Miracle” Mets, lived a life worthy of the words of his teammate and friend Jackie Robinson: “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.” In addition to detailing Hodges ups and downs on the field, Mort Zachter shows how Hodges impacted many lives. In stark contrast to today’s culture of selfies, self – promotion, and steroids, Hodges’s humility made him a beloved public figure in his day and beyond.
