carl hubbellOn July 10, 1934, in one of the most memorable All-Star Game performances ever, Carl Hubbell strikes out five consecutive future Hall of Famers. Hubbell fans Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons, and Joe Cronin.After three scoreless innings he leaves with the National League ahead, 4 – 0. The American League rallies, scoring nine runs off Lon Warneke, Van Mungo and Dizzy Dean, while Mel Harder pitches five shutout innings in relief of Red Ruffing to hold the lead. Frankie Frisch and Joe Medwick hit homers. Earl Averill’s three RBI are decisive for the AL’s 9 – 7 victory. Hubbell himself will gain election to the Hall in 1947.
