Jimmie FOXX

Biography

A short bio from the Boston Garter Game of the Century card back: Muscular first baseman Jimmie Fox of the Philadelphia A’s is the most menacing batter in all of baseball. Called “the right-handed Babe Ruth” Foxx not only hits home runs in bunches, he also hits them almost clean out of the ballpark. Last year, after a mild slump in 1931, he almost equaled Ruth’s famous record by bashing 58 four baggers to go along with his .364 batting average and 169 runs knocked in. Jimmie is a genial soul and sociable guy, but facing him in the Game of the Century will be no picnic for any NL hurler.
