#60 - Carl Hubbell

Nicknamed “The Meal Ticket” and “King Carl“, Hubbell was a member of the New York Giants in the National League from 1928 to 1943 and  remained on the team’s payroll for the rest of his life, long after their move to San Francisco.

Twice voted the National League’s MVP, Hubbell was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1947. During 1936 and 1937, Hubbell set the major league record for consecutive wins by a pitcher with 24 and is perhaps best remembered for his performance in the 1934 All-Star Game, when he struck out five of the game’s great hitters in succession with his primary pitch: the screwball.
