Joe Glenn Stats

Joe Glenn was born on Thursday, November 19, 1908, in Dickson City, Pennsylvania. Glenn was 23 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 15, 1932, with the New York Yankees. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Joe Glenn baseball stats page.

"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)

Did you know that Joe Glenn was behind the plate when Babe Ruth took the mound and pitched in his final Major League game, a complete game 6-5 victory over the Boston Red Sox on October 1, 1933 ? Did you know Glenn was also catching seven years later, this time for the Red Sox , when Ted Williams made his only pitching appearance on August 24, 1940 ?

Joe Glenn
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 .

Joe Glenn Multi-Home Ru Game
Joe Glenn | The Altoona Tribune | July 29, 1939 | Page 6
The 1939 St. Louis Browns lost 111 games, including a record setting 59 games at home. Joe Glenn helped them snap a 10-game losing streak that year when he had his first, and only, multi-home run game on July 28, 1939 . Joe Hevling was on the the mound and surrendered long balls to Gabby in the top of the seventh inning and ninth inning.
