When Pettitte won a 1-0 game over Smoltz in Game 5 of the 1996 WS, all of a sudden he got a rep as a big game pitcher. This is the same situation.The info about his ERA going way up after the 3rd inning is true, but normally his pitch count is much higher. He didn’t have this kind of efficiency at all during regular season. Looks like his 2018 stuff.
The great Gil Hodges, charter member of the Boys of Summer. He died far too young.I, and many other kids, went trick or treating at the hodges residence on Bedford avenue in 1969. Mrs. Hodges gave us candy while we tried to peer into the house.
As we crossed the street afterward, Gil himself came running out of the house and hopped into a car parked in front as people cheered.
