Lefty Gomez/White Hill Mystery

Lefty Gomez/White Hill Mystery

Originally uploaded by yourdailylink.

My son and I were playing at White Hill’s Lefty Gomez Field today and noticed the plaque describing Gomez’s accomplishments. You can learn more about this Bay Area native’s career here.

My question: who is Goofy and why is his name inscribed in cement at the bottom of this dedication? The cement may or may not part of the original marker.

Can any White Hill grads solve the mystery?
