1934 Original photo Yankees Johnny Broaca, Johnny Murphy & DeShong

In his rookie season with the 1934 New York Yankees, Broaca went 12-9 as a starter with an ERA of 4.16. In 1935 he went 15-7 ERA 3.58 and in 1936, the year the Yankees won the World Series, Broaca was 12-7 with an ERA of 4.24. In 1937 after starting the season with a disappointing 1-4 record Broaca mysteriously jumped the team. His hiatus from baseball also included the entire 1938 season. It was rumored at the time that Broaca's wife was involved in affairs with a number of his Yankee teammates. In 1939 Broaca came back to professional baseball with the Cleveland Indians for what would be his last season. He was used primarily as a reliever and appeared in 22 games going 4-2. After a brief stint as a professional boxer, Yale graduate Broaca returned to his hometown of Lawrence, Ma. He worked the rest of his life as a common laborer for the City of Lawrence allegedly to prevent his ex-wife from receiving any alimony.
