In his only season as an everyday outfielder (Phillies, 1933), this speedy line-drive
hitter had 200 hits to bat .309, and led the NL in at-bats and putouts. Briefly a
member of the Cardinals' famed Gas House Gang, Fullis retired early due to eye trouble.
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 8, 1929: At Pittsburgh's Schenley Park, the Giants Carl Hubbell pitches an 11–0 no-hitter against the Pirates, allowing just one walk. In the 9th, the 1st two batters reached on errors before Hubbell records a strikeout and starts the game-ending DP. It's the first no-hitter by a lefthander since Hub Leonard in 1918. Chick Fullis starts the scoring with a home run in the 2nd, his 3rd in three days, and Mel Ott adds two home runs to take the National League lead.
»July 18, 1931:
John McGraw is ejected from a game in St. Louis after he rages over an out call on the Giants Chick Fullis. A telegram McGraw receives before the next game causes another tantrum, as NL president Heydler fines him $150 and suspends him for three days.
