CARL HUBBELL AUTOGRAPH
Carl Owen Hubbell was born June 22, 1903 – died November 21, 1988. Hubbell was a left-handed screwball pitcher in Major League Baseball who played with the New York Giants in the National League from 1928 to 1943. In the 1934 All-Star game played at the Polo Grounds, Hubbell set a record by striking out in succession five batters destined for Cooperstown: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons and Joe Cronin. In 1984, the 50th anniversary of this legendary performance, the National League pitchers Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden combined to fan six batters in a row for a new All-Star Game record (future Hall of Famers Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, and George Brett by Valenzuela; Lance Parrish, Chet Lemon, and Alvin Davis by Gooden). Hubbell himself was on hand for the 1984 All-Star Game at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park to throw out the first pitch (a screwball).
