Carl Hubbell knew that every year in July his telephone would start ringing. As baseball's All-Star Game grew near, reporters asked him anew about his legendary moment-the 1934 All-Star Game. He had scored five consecutive strikeouts there: a feat for the ages, considering that all five of the batters he bested were to become among the brightest figures in baseball's Hall of Fame. Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Al Simmons, Jimmie Foxx, and Babe Ruth all failed to master Hub's baffling screwball while the crowd was hushed in disbelief. This book tells of Carl Hubbell's rise from an Oklahoma village to fifteen years (1928-1943) of major league pitching excellence and of his influence beyond that as a top executive with his Giants (in New York and San Francisco). It's a compelling tale of a pitcher who became much more than a baseball player.
