Uncommon Commons: Hank Johnson tamed A's Hall of Fame line-up
Hank Johnson had a long, but only modestly successful major league career with the Yankees (1925-36, 1928-32), Red Sox (1933-35), A's (1936) and Reds (1939). Lifetime he had a 63-56 Major league record on a 4.75 ERA.
I wonder if there has ever been another regular-season game that included so many Hall of Famers on one team, or some many on both sides of the contest?
After he left the big leagues, Johnson continued to pitch in the minors until he was 37 years old in 1943.
