Great Baseball Moments- Carl Hubbell Strikes Out Five Hall of Famers in A Row- July 10, 1934- Polo Grounds, New York.

The All-Star Game got off to a spectacular start- in the first ever All-Star Game- Babe Ruth hit the first home run ever in all-star competition. In the second game- held on July 10, 1934 at The Polo Grounds in New York City- 28 future Hall of Fame players would be selected to play in the game. The highlight of the game is when the hometown favorite- New York Giants star pitcher Carl Hubbell aka King Carl- struck out five future Hall of Fame players in a row.

The five Hall of Fame players who Hubbell struck out were- the greatest of them all- Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin. This great pitching performance- nearly 90 years later is still remembered as one of the greatest All-Star Game moments ever.

  1. I would read about this and imagine it as a kid striking out those batters…I love the screwball…Fernando used it but not many people try it.

    • a pitch that has kind of disappeared. I don’t think there is anyone in MLB that throws it today.
