Since Hubbell was picked on this page (good pick by the way, I was torn between Feller and Hubbell), the interesting thing about his All Star game performance where he struck out Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Simmons, Cronin in order is that those guys (apart from Ruth) weren't really known for stiking out. In fact, all 5 of them combined for only 255 strikouts that entire season (with Gehrig and Cronin only strikingout about 30 times each). So Hubbell's feat was even more impressive in that context. Its even more interesting that Hubbell only struck out an average of just over 100 batter a season over his career.
