Baseball's biggest battery is recorded‚ appropriately‚ with the New York Giants‚ as Garland "Gob" Buckeye‚ a 260 pound pro football lineman in the off-season‚ makes his NL pitching debut with 250 poundShanty Hogan behind the plate. The Giants lose to the Cardinals. In a significant move‚ the Giants purchase 25-year-old lefty Carl Hubbell from Beaumont for an amount rumored to be the most ever paid for a Texas League player.
