    On December 30 in Baseball History...

   
    1925 - The Giants trade two pitchers, southpaw Jack Bentley and right-hander Wayland Dean, to the Phillies for righty hurler Jimmy Ring. Philadelphia's new pitchers will combine to post a 0-3 record for their new team, while Ring compiles a mediocre 11-10 mark for New York, before being included in an off-season blockbuster trade along with Frankie Frisch that brings Rogers Hornsby from St. Louis to the Big Apple for one season.

    1926 - The Chicago Tribune breaks a story that the Tigers threw a four-game series to the White Sox in 1917 to help Chicago win the pennant. Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis convenes a hearing on the matter, but dismisses all charges. Landis can find no witnesses to confirm any part of Swede Risberg's claim.


    1935 - Sandy Koufax, one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball history, is born in Brooklyn. He will go on to pitch for the hometown Dodgers, but his career really takes off when the team moves to Los Angeles. Koufax will post a 129-47 record and capture three Cy Young Awards. He won all three when only one award was given annually for the two leagues.

    1943 - Babes swap places: The Phillies send first baseman Babe Dahlgren to Pittsburgh for catcher Babe Phelps and cash.

    2002 - Citing this will probably be his last year 40-year old Roger Clemens (13-6, 4.35) agrees to a $10.1 million, one-year deal with the Yankees. The 19-year veteran, who has won the Cy Young Award six times, is seven victories shy of 300.

    2004 - Aid originally destined for Nicaragua in memory of the anniversary of Roberto Clemente’s tragic flight 32 years ago will be sent instead to the earthquake and tsunami victims of Southern Asia. Roberto Clemente, Jr., who with the help of the Project Club Clemente, collected two tons of supplies and raised nearly $20,000 in dollars in an effort to reenact his father’s unfinished mission, decides to postpone the ceremonial flight and divert the relief to help those in desperate need right now.

    2008 - Chris Snyder remains a Diamondback after agreeing to a reported three-year deal worth $14.5 million. The 27-year old catcher becomes the latest individual to sign a multiyear contract with Arizona as the team attempts to develop a group of core players who will stay and play together for the long term.

    2015 - The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Scott Kazmir as a free agent.

    2015 - The Texas Rangers signed Donnie Veal as a free agent.
