July 10, 1934: Carl Hubbell makes baseball history

The second All Star game was played on this day in 1934:

“The second annual All-Star Game produces Carl Hubbell’s amazing feat of striking out five future Hall of Famers in a row.

After two batters reach in the first, he strikes out Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx. He adds Al Simmons and Joe Cronin to start the second.

He leaves with the N.L. ahead 4-0, but the A.L. rallies for a 9-7 victory.”

It must have been something to watch!
