David Wright accepts the 2019 Gil Hodges Award

This is pretty cool…

The goal of the Gil Hodges Unforgettable Fire Award, as well explained by Greg Prince, is to keep Gil’s legacy aglow so even those who don’t remember him first-hand “understand what it means to have somebody like that set our team on its path and realize that all the best elements of sportsmanship and humanity can come together in a Mets uniform and a Mets clubhouse.

Gil’s life in and out of baseball reminds us that some things and some people transcend mere championships — though let’s not overlook that first championship, forever the signature achievement of this franchise.”
