FOOTBALL & BASEBALL DYK?
ROBERT “CAL” HUBBARD is the only individual to be enshrined in both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the National Baseball Hall of Fame. A Charter Enshrinee of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Hubbard was the most feared lineman of his time during a career spent with the NFL’s New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Pirates (later renamed the Steelers). He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1976 for his distinction as an umpire in the American League from 1936-1951.
In the early years of the National Football League, it was common for the football teams to share the names of the more popular Major League Baseball teams. For example, the Cleveland Indians and the New York Yankees were NFL teams at one time. In fact, there were three separate Cleveland Indians franchises in the NFL over the years (1921, 1923, and 1931). The New York Yankees were members of the NFL for two seasons (1927-28).
Pro Football Hall of Famer TOM MACK’s father Ray was a second baseman in the Major Leagues for 10 seasons, the first eight with the Cleveland Indians. He played 769 games for the Tribe.
