Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Hobbie finished the season with Memphis, winding up with a 15-15 record in nineteen starts and thirty-four relief appearances. His manager, Lou Klein , said, 'He's a throwback to the days when a pitcher wanted to pitch every chance he could get.'" - Author Jim Leefers in Drama and Pride in the Gateway City: The 1964 St. Louis Cardinals (University of Nebraska Press, 04/01/2013, 'Glen Hobbie' Page 95)

Did you know that during the 1959 season Glen Hobbie led the National League in errors committed by a pitcher, in 1960 he led the league again, then two years later (1962) he had the highest fielding percentage (a perfect 1.000) in the senior circuit?

Bottom of the ninth, two men out, scored tied 1-1, batting in the nine-hole, Glen Hobbie was going the distance on the mound in Wrigley on August 25, 1960 , as was his counterpart Vinegar Bend Mizell , but Hobbie hit a walk-off home run, his first big league homer.

Tony Kaufmann ( July 4, 1925 ), Bill Lee ( May 7, 1941 ), Don Cardwell ( September 2, 1960 ) then Glen Hobbie ( July 2, 1961 ) - Chicago Cubs pitchers who in historical order (only through Hobbie's game) have hit two home runs in the same game.
