Card #40 - Bump Hadley
Bump came to the White Sox via trade in December 1931 with the Washington Senators. The Sox gave up John Kerr and Carl Reynolds, while Washington sent over Sad Sam Jones and Jackie Haynes with Hadley.
The acquisition of Irving Darius Hadley was short lived, as he was traded to the St. Louis Browns, along with Bruce Campbell to obtain Red Kress on April 27, 1932.
While with the Pale Hose, Bump appeared in three games, starting two, and had a 1-1 record with a 3.86 ERA. Hadley managed to hit one single while batting for the White Sox. It came in his first start for the team on, April 15, 1932, against the St. Louis Browns and starting pitcher George Blaeholder. This also turned out to be his only win with Chicago and his only complete game there. The game was won 4-3.
Hadley would go on to greater success with the Yankees, helping them win three World Series in 1936, 1937 and 1939.
