Gil Hodges: The Quiet Man free pdf GIL HODGES: THE QUIET MAN - NEW SPECIAL COMMEMORATIVE EDITION When the original Gil Hodges: The Quiet Man was first released as a hardcover edition, it was rated among the top five sports books of the year by USA Today newspaper and received outstanding reviews. This new release is a Special Commemorative Edition that includes never before revealed controversial and confidential information about the struggle to get Gil Hodges his rightful and deserved place in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Inside accounts of the covert BHOF politics and the men who voted against Gil tell the real truth of this injustice. This newly revised book has a detailed introduction about Gil's HOF votes, hundreds of additional pictures of his life on and off the field and more extensive interviews with the people who knew him best - his teammates, opponents, the players he managed, friends and family. Gil Hodges was one of the most beloved and respected men in the history of our National Pastime. As a member of the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1950s, and manager of the "Miracle Mets" in 1969, Gil became the idol of millions, not only because of his accomplishments on the field, but also because of his character, dignity, courage and humility. Gil's widow, Mrs. Joan Hodges said "The original Gil Hodges: The Quiet Man was the best book ever written about Gil. This new edition is even better. If you want to know who he truly was as a man, a player, manager, friend, husband and father, this is the only book you need to read." Indeed, much of the material published about Gil since the release of THE QUIET MAN has relied heavily on Amoruso's research, first person interviews, his film The Quiet Man and the original book.
