MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 GOMER HODGE

Next up on the "missing" hit-parade is Cleveland Indians pinch-hitter Gomer Hodge and the 1972 set:


Hodge only saw big league action during the 1971 season with the Tribe, playing in 80 games and collecting 90 plate appearances.
Used generally as a pinch-hitter, he also played first, second and third base for a total of eight times.
He batted .205 for the year, getting 17 hits in 83 official at-bats, with three doubles and a home run with nine runs batted in and three runs scored.
Hodge played all of his 16-year professional ball in the Cleveland organization between 1963 and 1976, playing in over 1000 minor league games before calling it a career at the age of 32.
