Carl Hubbell

Carl Owen Hubbell
Inducted to the Hall of Fame in: 1947
Primary team: New York Giants
Primary position: Pitcher

The Giants' mainstay of the 1930s, Carl Hubbell led the club to three pennants in a five-year span, during which he averaged 23 victories a season and was twice named MVP. Baffling hitters with a devastating screwball, The Meal Ticket compiled a streak of 46 1/3 scoreless innings in 1933 and won 16 straight games in 1936 (and a record 24 over two seasons). The nine-time All-Star remains famed for his performance in the 1934 All-Star Game, in which he fanned Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin in succession.

"He could throw strikes at midnight. I never saw another pitcher who could so fascinate the opposition the way Hubbell did. "
Billy Herman
