Program signed: "Gil Hodges", "Tom Agee" and "Ken Boswell", 4 pages, 6¼x9 folded, 12½x9 unfolded. A program for the seventh annual Welcome Home Mets Dinner at the New York Hilton in 1971. GIL HODGES (1924-1972), who played first base for the Dodgers (1943, 1947-1961) and was an original member of the New York Mets (1962-1963), tied the Major League record of four home runs in one game on August 31, 1950. He drove in 100 runs in seven consecutive seasons (1949-1955) and drove in both runs in the seventh game of the 1955 World Series, giving the Brooklyn Dodgers their only World Championship. Hodges managed the Washington Senators (1963-1968) and then the New York Mets from 1968 until a fatal heart attack in Florida, April 2, 1972. He led the Miracle Mets, who had been chronic losers in their first seven seasons, to a World Championship in 1969. Outfielder TOMMIE AGEE (1942-2001) was the American League Rookie of the Year in 1966, becoming the first Chicago White Sox player to hit 20 home runs and steal 20 bases in the same season. He is best remembered, however, for his four years with the New York Mets, especially the Miracle Mets of 1969. Always a fine fielder, Agee had robust offensive seasons as well in 1969 and 1970. The NL Comeback Player of the Year (1969), he also starred in Game 3 of the World Series, hitting a home run off Jim Palmer and making two spectacular catches. Agee was a 2-time All-Star and 2-time Gold Glove. KEN BOSWELL, born Kenneth George Boswell in 1946, played in the big leagues from 1967 to 1977. Most of his career was spent with the New York Mets, including the 1969 Miracle Mets. He was traded to the Houston Astros in 1975, where he became an effective pinch hitter. Boswell batted .248 during his major league career and earned 31 home runs and 244 RBIs. Soiled. Creased. Lightly worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
