On July 10, 1934, in one of the most memorable All-Star Game performances ever, Carl Hubbell strikes out five consecutive future Hall of Famers. Hubbell fanned Ruth, Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons, and Joe Cronin in that game won by the American League, 9-7. Hubbell himself gained entry to the Hall in 1947.

On July 10, 1982, Larry Parrish of the Texas Rangers tied a major league record by clubbing his third grand slam within the span of a week. Parrish’s latest slam lifted the Rangers to a 6-5 win over the Detroit Tigers. In 1968, Detroit’s Jim Northrup also hit three grand slams in a week.
