On This Day In Baseball History: July 10, 1934

 

New York Giants all-star lefty Carl Hubbell puts on a pitching display for the ages. The NL starter allows the first two batters to reach base. Then he strikes out, in succession, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons, and Joe Cronin. Hubbell was no slouch in his own right. He was a 9-time all-star and 2 two MVP and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1947.
