Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"When he got his chance, Joe (Glenn) performed quite well. He was part of the Yankee dynasty of the 1930's, the Yankees of ( Lou ) Gehrig , ( Red ) Ruffing , ( Joe ) DiMaggio , and ( Red ) Rolfe , who captured four consecutive world's championships. Though his part was a small one, Joe was nonetheless a valuable member of the cast. Always gregarious, Joe was tagged by Gehrig with the nickname 'Gabby'. 'I did a lot of buzzin',' Joe said. 'I kept them loose.'" - SABR Member Joe Lawler (1978 SABR Baseball Research Journal, Page 10)

Joe Glenn | Original Art by Art Krenz (1937) | The Sporting News
On April 28, 1938 , future Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Grove ( Boston Red Sox ) faced off against future Hall of Fame pitcher Lefty Gomez ( New York Yankees ) in a day game at Yankee Stadium. Grove was going for the complete game win, had a nice lead, but in the ninth inning George Selkirk reached base on error, future Hall of Famer Joe Gordon walked, and Joe Glenn came to the plate with no outs. If a pitcher's best friend is a double play, then Grove had more than one, as Glenn grounded into a game-ending 3-6-3 triple play (future Hall of Famer Jimmie Foxx to future Hall of Famer Joe Cronin then back to Foxx ). Also in the lineup that day, future hall of famers Bobby Doerr , Lou Gehrig and Red Rolfe .
