Hal Lee replaced Babe Ruth early in the first game of a double header on May 30, 1935. It would turn out to be Ruth's last Major League game (Rabbit Maranville also finished out his career on the 1935 Boston Braves). Lee, who would get 422 at-bats that year, had the highest batting average of the regulars on the 1935 Boston Braves.
A left-fielder, Lee spent his entire major league career in the National League, and had his best season with the 1932 Philadelphia Phillies, hitting .303 and slugging .497. He was fifth in the league in doubles that year, seventh in triples, and eighth in home runs, playing in the Baker Bowl.
He hit three home runs in a game on July 6, 1934, the second player on the Boston Braves to do so (the first was Les Bell). His first major league hit was a pinch-hit home run for the 1930 Brooklyn Robins.
