Gail Hopkins

Gail Hopkins played for the Royals from 1971-1973, primarily starting at first base in ’71 before splitting time with John Mayberry in ’72 and ‘73. A lefty and tough hitter to strike out, Hopkins finished his Royals career with marks of .358/.381/.739 to go along with 11 HR and 68 RBI. Gail also played at the MLB level for the White Sox and Dodgers and after his career, earned four graduate degrees en route to becoming an orthopedic surgeon. Hopkins recently joined Dave O to talk about his COMPLETE SHOCK of being called up to the Big Leagues, two historic at bats he had against Nolan Ryan, playing with a rookie George Brett, stories and memories to honor many of his deceased teammates and much more!
