   Biography

"King Carl" as he was called, is best known for his remarkable performance in the 1934 All-Star game. He began the game yielding a single and a walk, before striking out five consecutive future Hall of Famers. Among them were Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Jimmie Foxx.

The 1934 All-Star game was just one of the many miraculous pitching performances by the left-handed hurler of the New York Giants. Over a career that spanned 16 seasons, Hubbell won the National League Most Valuable Player award in 1933 and 1936, pitched in three World Series, and netted five straight 20 win seasons.

Hubbell could never quite step away from the game he grew up playing. After his retirement in 1943, he was director of the Giants minor league organization and was later director of player development for 35 years. The last 10 years of his life were spent as a Giants scout. Carl Hubbell was inducted into baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1947.
