Dec. 10, 1935: Philadelphia A’s trade Jimmie Foxx to the Boston Red Sox
If I were catching blindfolded, I'd always know when it was Foxx who connected. He hit the ball harder than anyone else.
Foxx retired in 1945 with 534 home runs – the second most of any player who retired before 1950. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1951.
Matt Kelly was the fall public relations intern at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum
