Biographical Information[edit]

Ron Hodges played 12 seasons as a back-up catcher for the New York Mets, from 1973 to 1984. The Mets' regular catchers during that period were first Jerry Grote, then John Stearns; Duffy Dyer and Alex Trevino also saw playing time behind the plate in those years. Hodges managed to hang on because in addition to being a serviceable catcher, he was a decent left-handed pinch-hitter. He only once played over 100 games, in 1983, but even then only had 250 at-bats. one of only two years in which he went to the plate 200 times. He did appear in the 1973 World Series, drawing a walk in his only plate appearance. Overall, he hit .240 with 19 homers in 666 games.
