1939 Play Ball #73: Hal Schumacher, New York Giants, P

    Hal Schumacher was a 2x All-Star ('33, '35) that spent his entire MLB career with the Giants from 1931-1946.  He won a World Series ring in 1933, facing 60 Senators batters with a 2.45 ERA in two starts for the Giants.  Schumacher also appeared in the 1936 and 1937 World Series against the Yankees who were on 4-year championship streak.  He had a down year in 1939, posting his career worst season ERA, but bounced back in 1940 to rank league 2nd in Strikouts per 9 IP and 4th in total Strikeouts.
