Pitcher Hal Schumacher of the New York Giants won twenty games once in his career and was an All-Star twice, but perhaps his greatest career highlights are two World Series starts he made. In Game Two of the 1933 Series, he allowed only five hits in a complete game victory over the Washington Senators. In 1936, he was the winning pitcher in Game Five against the New York Yankees. At one point in that game, he retired three future Hall of Famers (Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, and Bill Dickey) in a row with the bases loaded en route to a ten-inning victory.

Schumacher was widely considered one of the better-hitting pitchers of his day, slugging 15 homers over his big league career.

Schumacher enlisted in the Naval Reserves in December 1942 and was discharged in November 1945.
