Myril Hoag 6 singles in 1 game...

Item # 679314

June 07, 1934

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, June 7, 1934 

* Myril Hoag 6 hits (singles) in 1 game 
* New York Yankees 

The sport's section (page 32) has a 2 column heading: "Yanks Break Even With Red Sox, But Lose League Lead to Tigers" with subhead: "Hoag Equals Circuit Record by Smashing 6 Singles in Row in Opener" and photo of Hoag. (see) First report coverage on Myril Hoag becoming the 1st New York Yankee to have 6 hits in one 9 inning game. This record was held until Johnny Damon tied it in 2008. All of Hoag hits were singles which is a MLB record for a 9 inning game. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Complete with 48 pages, light toning at the margins, generally very nice.
