1903–88, American baseball player, b. Carthage, Mo. A left-handed pitcher, Hubbell played his entire major league career (1928–43) with the New York Giants. Hubbell, famous for his adept use of his "screwball" pitch, hurled brilliantly in the 1934 All-Star game, pitched 24 consecutive victories in the 1936–37 seasons, and won 253 games before he retired. Known as "the Meal Ticket," he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1947.
