Oregon Player Enters the Hall

As the Ol’Dirty decides to use it’s sports section to talk about golf players playing non ¬†University of Oregon affiliated golf. Former Oregon baseball player and 1942 American League MVP Joe Gordon was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

As a second baseman for the New York Yankees ¬†and Cleveland Indians Gordon won 5 World Series and was a 9 time Allstar. Gordon’s MVP season featured him beating baseball Legends Ted Williams and Joe Dimaggio.

Gordon missed the prime of his career fighting in World War II. Gordon died in 1978 at the age of 68. His daughter accepted the award for him.
