Marking 50 years since the passing of a parish hero: Our Lady Help of Christians in Midwood, Brooklyn held a Memorial Mass for Gil Hodges who is set to become a baseball Hall of Hamer.

The Brooklyn legend was a parishioner at the church and often said a “Hail Mary” before big-league games.

While he will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in July, his parish also dedicated their statue of St. Joseph in his honor.
