Ron Hodges

Ronald Wray Hodges
Batted: Left
Threw: Right
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 185 lbs.
Born: June 22, 1949 in Rocky Mount, VA
Drafted: 2nd round 1972 by the Mets

Drafted by three other clubs before the Mets selected him in 1972, this long-time backup catcher is pictured here on his 1974 Topps card. Overlooked was Ron's ability to draw a walk; despite a mediocre lifetime batting average, he several times posted outstanding on-base percentages.  Three more cards appear beneath the stats box.
