On July 26, 1935 — Ed Linke starts a 1-2-6 double play when Yankees outfielder Jesse Hill’s line drive, that caroms of his head, is caught by catcher Jack Redmond, who relays the ball to shortstop Red Kress to double up Ben Chapman at second base. The Senator right-hander will be hospitalized for two days after being carried off the pitcher’s mound on a stretcher.
