  1. John McGraw’s resignation announcement on June 3rd, 1932 was unfortunately overshadowed by Lou Gehrig’s epic feat of hitting four home runs in one game on the same day, something that had been done only twice before in major league history (by Bobby Lowe and Ed Delehanty, both of them nineteenth century players.) Gehrig missed hitting a fifth home run in that game by inches when his hard-hit fly to the deepest part of centerfield in Shibe Park off of Athletics pitcher Ed Rommel was caught. The Yankees mauled the Philadelphia squad in that game by an outlandish 21 to 3 score. McGraw, in the meantime, hung up his managerial spikes for the last time on the same day Gehrig accomplished his four-dinger feat, and died less than two years later. New York Giants Preservation Society remembers and reveres John McGraw!
