2005 Jose Canseco’s book, Juiced, is released in certain markets. In the book Canseco claims several successful players and former teammates used steroids and other PEDs.
1985 The Minnesota Twins and Kent Hrbek agree to a 5-year $5.9 million deal making him the franchise’s first million dollar player.
1982 The St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres agree to swap shortstops with the Cardinals getting Ozzie Smith and the Padres getting Garry Templeton. Smith would spend the remaining 15 years of his career in St. Louis adding 11 gold gloves to the two he already had and making 14 more all-star teams on his way to the Hall of Fame.
1914 The Cubs trade player/manager Johnny Evers to the Boston Braves for Bill Sweeney and cash. Evers will lead the “Miracle Braves” to the NL pennant and he’ll win the Chalmers Awards as the most valuable player.
