Joan Hodges joins Duke Snider (4), Carl Erskine (17), Don Newcombe (36), Jackie Robinson (42), Danny Garcia (6), Brian Bannister (19), Dillon Gee (20), Angel Pagan (35), Pia Toscano & her husband, the late Gil Hodges (14). Like Gil, #14 was on her banner. Right above the 14 is a little flag with MRS, so it read MRS. 14.

The team had a ceremony that involved Benny Distefano, Joan Hodges, Gil Hodges Jr. & Steve Cohen giving speeches.

This was a very classy move by the Cyclones. I tip my hat helmet to Cyclones VP Steve Cohen, GM Kevin Mahoney, Asst. GM Gary Perone & Director of Communications Billy Harner for adding Joan Hodges to MCU Park’s Honored Numbers.


About Daniel S. Weiss

I have been an avid Cyclones fan since 2001. In December of 2013 I decided to launch my own blog "Brooklyn Baseball Banter" to cover the Brooklyn Cyclones.
