The right-handed Jim Tobin pitched for the Bees in 1932, compiling a 9-2 record with a 6.13 ERA. His major league career began in 1939 with the Pittsburgh Prates. He also played with the Boston Bees and Braves in the National League, and the Detroit Tigers in the American League.
On May 13, 1942, Tobin became the first (and last) major league pitcher in the “modern” era to hit three home runs in a single game. In 1944, Tobin threw two no-hit games.
