Inside the Marlins: Flash of Hope takes us to Dees hometown of Avon Park, Fla. to share his story. After the tragic loss of his mother when he was just a young boy, Dee received love and guidance from his grandmother and uncles while his father, Tom Gordon, launched his MLB pitching career. Dee's journey to success with the Los Angeles Dodgers and Marlins has been full of great accomplishments and recognition. But he also faced difficult challenges, including the devastating loss of teammate Jos Fernndez last year. It was in this dark time that Dee provided an uplifting moment for his team and all Marlins fans, creating a moment that will never be forgotten.
His "Flash Of Hope" foundation is one of several charitable causes for which Dee gives his time and efforts. He also made a meaningful contribution to a village in need in the Dominican Republic last off-season. Dee explains why these causes are so meaningful to him throughout the episode. All-Star, Gold-Glove Winner, batting champion, humanitarian, leader and Marlin; Dee Gordon is all of these and much more.
