This Date in Baseball History – July 10

Carl Hubbell

July 10, 1934, was the second edition of what has since become know as the Midsummer Classic – the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. In that game, New York Giants pitcher Carl Hubbell faced one of the most ferocious parades of power hitters the game has ever seen, and got the better of all of them.

Mick Gillispie told the story of Hubbell’s famous line of five strikeouts during the sixth inning of Tennessee’s game with the Jacksonville Suns.
