Al Bridwell


John J. McGraw says: “To me the greatest hit is the most timely hit. That makes the answer comparatively easy. The single made by Al Bridwell in that famous game with the Cubs in 1908, when Merkle failed to touch second, stands out in my memory as the greatest. Al was not the least disturbed by the importance of the moment. In fact, Bridwell was one of the best players I ever knew.”
