    Joe Gordon is my favorite player as my first glove was Joe Gordon Model. From things I have read Joe and Larry MacPhail were in conflict in 1946 before the trade as Joe was upset about Bill Dickey removal as manger and MacPhail accusal of Joe 'laying down on him' and using too big a bat and of a fight or near fight in the locker room between the two. Joe was a little short tempered as he put hands on Charlie O when manger of the KC A's. I would like any information or thoughts on this and why it took so long for Joe to get in the hall as other infielders that could not hold Joe's bat or glove beat him in. James Hickey
