Description
Carl Hubbell (1903-1988) played the entirety of his Major League Baseball career with the New York Giants. A left-hander known primarily for his screwball, (a pitch that breaks in the opposite direction of a curveball, in his case, away from right-handed batters.) Hubbell was one of the most dominant pitchers of the 1930s.
Playing from 1928-1943, Hubbell won two National League Most Valuable Player trophies (1933,1936,) made nine All-Star game
appearances, led the National League in earned run average and wins three times each, and brought home a World Series trophy with the Giants in 1933.
Hubbell retired with a lifetime win-loss record of 235-154,.298 earned run average, and 1,677 strikeouts. In 1947 he was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame
