    On November 18 in Baseball History...

    1886 - The Pittsburgh Alleghenys leave the American Association to join the National League. After a few name changes, including the Innocents, the team will become known as the Pirates in 1891.

    1914 - The Cubs hire future Hall of Famer Roger Bresnahan to manage the team. The former Cardinal skipper will stay for just a year as Chicago finishes the season in fourth place with a 73-80 record.

    1947 - The Browns trade All-Star shortstop Vern Stephens and pitcher Jack Kramer to the Red Sox for six players and $310,000. The dealing will continue tomorrow as Ellis Kinder and Billy Hitchc0ck also go to Boston in exchange for three more St. Louis players and $65,000, making the total number of players traded 13 (4 Browns, 9 Red Sox) along with $375,000 going to the cash deprived Browns.

    1949 - Dodger second baseman Jackie Robinson (.342, 16, 124) becomes the first black player to win the MVP Award. Stan Musial, Ralph Kiner, and teammate Pee Wee Reese are the runners-ups in the BBWAA balloting.

    1951 - Wanting to stay in California, minor leaguer Chuck Connors , an infielder for the PCL's Los Angeles Angels, becomes the first player to refuse to participate in the major league draft. The former Cub first baseman's refusal to leave the Pacific Coast League allows the minor leagues to ask for more money for big league talent.

    1954 - The A's hire Lou Boudreau to replace skipper Eddie Joost, who is given his unconditional release as a player-manager. During his three-year tenure in Kansas City, the future Hall of Famer will pilot the second-division club to a 151-260 record.

    1959 - Harry Craft is replaced by Bob Elliott as the A's manager. During his three-year stint in Kansas City, 'Wildfire' compiled a 162-196 (.453) record finishing in seventh place each season.

    1959 - Outfielder Bob Allison of Washington is voted the American League Rookie of the Year. Cleveland's Jim Perry is a distant second.

    1960 - Charlie Finley, 42-year-old insurance tycoon from Gary, Indiana, makes a formal bid for the new Los Angeles club.

    1964 - Baltimore third baseman Brooks Robinson is voted American League Most Valuable Player, outpolling Mickey Mantle 269 to 171.

    1965 - Zoilo Versalles is named American League Most Valuable Player. The Minnesota shortstop gets 275 votes to 174 for outfielder teammate Tony Oliva.

    1966 - After finishing the Cy Young season with a 27-9 record and a league-leading 1.73 ERA, Sandy Koufax shocks the baseball world by announcing his retirement at the age of 30. The southpaw, who has thrown four no-hitters and set the single season strikeout record last year with 382, cites his arthritic arm and the fear of permanent damage as the reason for placing himself on the voluntarily retired list.

    1966 - Replacing the legendary Casey Stengel (175-404, .302) , the Mets name Wes Westrum as the team's second manager in the franchise's brief history. The former Giant catcher had taken over the club reins after the 'Old Perfessor' had fractured his hip in July.

    1970 - Johnny Bench wins the National League Most Valuable Player Award with 326 points, 108 more than Billy Williams of the Cubs. Bench had 45 homers, 148 RBI, and a .293 average for the Reds.

    1980 - Despite having missed 45 games with injuries, George Brett is named American League Most Valuable Player. The 27-year-old third baseman's .390 average was the highest in the major leagues since Ted Williams hit .406 in 1941, and he added 24 home runs and 118 RBI to lead Kansas City to its first American League pennant.

    1981 - Phillies third baseman Mike Schmidt wins his second consecutive National League Most Valuable Player Award, joining Ernie Banks and Joe Morgan as the only National League players to take the award back-to-back. Schmidt hit .316 with 31 home runs and 91 RBI in the abbreviated season and also led the league in runs and walks.

    1981 - Dick Williams replaces Frank Howard as manager of the last-place Padres. The future Hall of Fame skipper, who has won three pennants and two World Series in the last 14 years as a major league pilot, will lead San Diego to a National League pennant in 1984.

    1984 - Dwight Gooden becomes the second consecutive Met player to be named the National League’s Rookie of Year. The 19-year right-hander, who compiled a 17-9 record along with a 1.53 ERA and a league-leading 268 strikeouts, joins his teammate and close friend Darryl Strawberry to be honored the coveted freshman award.

    1985 - Dwight Gooden (National League) and Bret Saberhagen (American League) win the Cy Young Award in their respective leagues. Willie McGee, meanwhile, wins the National League Most Valuable Player Award, capping a season in which he led the league in batting average (.353) and hits (216) and also stole 56 bases for St. Louis.

    1986 - Roger Clemens becomes the first starting pitcher to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award since Vida Blue in 1971, receiving 19 of a possible 28 first-place votes to defeat runner-up Don Mattingly.

    1987 - Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson becomes the first player from a last-place club ever to win an Most Valuable Player Award, taking National League honors with .287 average, 49 home runs, and 137 RBI.

    1987 - George Bell (.308. 47, 134) is selected as the American League's Most Valuable Player making the San Pedro de Macoris native the first Dominican to win the prestigious award. The Blue Jays' all-star left fielder narrowly beat out Tigers shortstop Alan Trammell, who received 12 of the 28 first-place votes cast by the writers.

    1991 - President George H. W. Bush presents Red Sox legend Ted Williams, along with former first lady Betty Ford and former House Speaker Thomas ''Tip'' O'Neill, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Yankee Clipper Joe DiMaggio (1977) and Dodger great Jackie Robinson (1984, posthumously) have also been honored with the highest civilian award in the United States.

    1997 - The expansion draft, and a dizzying series of trades, result in dozens of players packing their bags. Two pitchers who appeared in the World Series a month earlier, Tony Saunders of the Marlins and Brian Anderson of the Indians, are the first players taken. Saunders, the first player chosen overall, heads a list of new Tampa Bay Devil Rays that includes Quinton McCracken, Bubba Trammell, Albie Lopez, and Terrell Wade, plus Fred McGriff, a Tampa native who arrives in a trade after the draft. The Arizona Diamondbacks, who signed shortstop Jay Bell to a five-year contract the day before the draft, select Jeff Suppan, Gabe Alvarez, Jorge Fabergas and Karim Garcia. The trade that makes perhaps the biggest splash is National League Cy Young winner Pedro Martinez going from Montreal to Boston.

    1998 - In a close race, Juan Gonzalez wins the American League's Most Valuable Player award when he barely outpoints Mariners shortstop Alex Rodriguez, 290-287. The Rangers outfielder, who was also selected as the AL's MVP in 1996, becomes the first Latin American native to win the prestigious prize multiple times.

    2000 - The Mariners sign Orix Blue Wave's Ichiro Suzuki to a three-year deal making him the first Japanese position player in major league history. Although terms of the contract were not disclosed, Seattle agrees to pay $13 million to his former team for the right to negotiate with Japan's best hitter.

    2002 - The Braves, Marlins, and Rockies complete a three-team trade which sends starting pitcher Mike Hampton and outfielder Juan Pierre to Florida with backstop Charles Johnson, outfielder Preston Wilson, southpaw reliever Vic Darensbourg and infield prospect Pablo Ozuna to the Colorado. The Marlins then sent Hampton to the Braves in exchange for righty reliever Tim Spooneybarger and pitching prospect Ryan Baker.

    2004 - Although the Expos may not know where they are playing next season (the final MLB approval for Washington, DC has been postponed) or the team’s new name, the former Montreal franchise will know who is the club’s manager. Frank Robinson, after compiling a 233-253 record despite many restrictions and hardships, will return to the helm for his fourth year as the skipper of this nomad ship.

    2008 - Joining Cal Ripken Jr. (Orioles - 1983) and Ryan Howard (Phillies - 2006), Dustin Pedroia (.326, 17, 83) becomes the third player in major league history to win the Most Valuable Player award a season after being selected as the Rookie of the Year. The scrappy Gold Glove second baseman, the 10th Red Sox player to earn the American League honor, received 16 of the 28 first-place votes to easily outdistance heavy-hitting Twins first baseman Justin Morneau (.300, 23, 129).

    2008 - Ryan Dempster (17-6, 2.96) and the Cubs agree to a $52 million, four-year deal. The 31-year-old right-handed stater had been the club's closer saving 87 games in 102 chances during the 2005-07 seasons.

    2008 - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice introduces Ken Griffey, Jr. as an American Public Diplomacy Envoy, a position in which the future Hall of Famer will represent the “values of the United States, not the government of the United States". The free-agent outfielder, who played for the Reds and White Sox last season, joins Cal Ripken Jr. as a major leaguer serving his country in the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

    2009 - Jim Tracy is named the National League Manager of the Year becoming the just the second person to cop the honor after taking over a team during the season, joining Jack McKeon for 2003 Marlins. The 53-year-old skipper, who piloted the Rockies to the NL Wild Card from a 14.5 game deficit on May 29, is rewarded by Colorado with a three-year contract.

    2009 - Mike Scioscia is named the AL Manager of the Year for the second time. The 50-year old Angels skipper, who piloted the club to its third consecutive division title and sixth postseason appearance in the last eight years, guided Los Angeles past a myriad of injuries to key players and helped to ease the team's deep sorrow caused by the sudden death of starter Nick Adenhart in a fatal car accident in April just hours after the 22-year old had earned a victory for the team.

    2010 - A day after he is selected as the American League Manager of the Year, Ron Gardenhire accepts a two-year extension through the 2013 season from the Twins. The 53-year-old skipper, who has won six division titles in his nine years with the team, has compiled a record of 803-656 (.550) during his tenure in Minnesota.

    2010 - Free-agent backstop John Buck signs a three-year, $18 million contract to catch for the Marlins, the team that sought his services a minute after free agency opened. The signing of the 30-year old catcher, who enjoyed a career year with the Blue Jays, hitting .281 with 20 home runs, continues Florida's active participation in the early off-season, that also includes the acquisition of four relievers and an infielder.

    2010 - Despite an unspectacular 13-12 record, Felix Hernandez is named the American League Cy Young Award winner ahead of Tampa Bay's David Price (19-6) and New York's CC Sabathia (21-7). King Felix's league-leading 2.27 ERA and the lack of run support provided by the last-place Mariners made the Seattle ace an easy choice for the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, who placed him first on 21 of the 28 ballots cast.

    2011 - The Cubs introduce Dale Sveum as the fifth-place team's new manager replacing Mike Quade, who was fired at the end of the season by Chicago's new GM Theo Epstein. The 52nd manager in franchise history, whose managerial experience consists of sixteen games as Milwaukee's interim skipper in 2008, is considered a no-nonsense baseball lifer who will stress the game's fundamentals while implementing “high standards of accountability” for the players.

    2013 - Tim Hudson agrees to a two-year deal, reportedly worth $23 million, to pitch for the Giants, joining a stellar rotation that includes Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, and Tim Lincecum. The 38 year-old right-hander compiled an 8-7 record with a 3.97 ERA last season for the Braves, before sustaining a season-ending ankle injury.

    2014 - The Mets announce the team is moving in sections of the Citi Field outfield wall, adjusting the distances from home plate to center and right field from three to 11 feet. According to New York's General Manager Sandy Alderson, the modifications are a refinement of previous changes made at the ballpark and will continue to be fair to both pitchers and hitters.

    2014 - Three-time All-Star backstop Russell Martin and the Blue Jays finalize a five-year, $82-million contract, the second-largest free-agent deal in franchise history. The acquisition of the 31 year-old Canadian-born catcher, who led the Pirates to playoff appearances for the past two seasons, signals Toronto intention of being a contender in the AL East next year.

    2014 - The Chicago White Sox signed Zach Duke as a free agent.

    2015 - The Milwaukee Brewers traded Francisco Rodriguez to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Javier Betancourt and player to be named.

Chicago White Sox / Re: Pale Hose History
« Last post by AndyMacFAIL on November 17, 2017, 12:29:31 am »

    On November 17 in Baseball History...

    1913 - Wilbert Robinson is named as the Dodgers' new manager. 'Uncle Robbie' will compile a 1375-1341 (.506) record during his 18 year tenure as the Brooklyn skipper.

    1953 - The St. Louis Browns officially become the Baltimore Baseball Club Inc. The Baltimore franchise board officially changes its name to the Orioles.

    1959 - Giants slugger Willie McCovey is the National League Rookie of the Year. McCovey gets all 24 votes to make him the second Giant in a row to win the award unanimously. Teammate Orlando Cepeda ran away with the award in 1958.

    1960 - The new Washington franchise is awarded to Elwood Quesada, Washington native, World War II hero, and head of the Federal Aviation Agency.

    1960 - After leading the the league with a .325 average, 30-year old Pirates shortstop Dick Groat is selected as the National League's Most Valuable Player, with Don Hoak, his partner on the left side of the Bucs' infield, being the runner-up to the award. Another teammate, right-fielder Roberto Clemente, is very disappointed being named eighth on the ballot.

    1964 - The Mets sign Yogi Berra to a two-year contract as a player-coach. The recently fired Yankee manager will collect two hits in his scant nine National League at-bats.

    1965 - William D. Eckert is selected by the owners to become baseball's fourth commissioner. The retired Air Force Lieutenant General succeeds Ford Frick.

    1971 - Vida Blue becomes the youngest player ever to win the MVP award. The 22-year old A's southpaw is only the fourth hurler to capture both the Cy Young Award and the MVP in the same season.

    1976 - Receiving 18 of the 24 first place votes, Yankee catcher Thurman Munson (.302, 17, 105) easily outdistances Kansas City third baseman George Brett to become the American League’s MVP. The team’s captain is the first Bronx Bomber to be selected as the league’s Most Valuable Player and the first to be named Rookie of the Year (1970).

    1977 - White Sox owner Bill Veeck gives Yankee free-agent Ron Blomberg, who has played in only one game during the last two seasons, a generous four-year contract worth $500,000 that includes an additional $80,000 signing bonus. The questionable deal will turn out to be a complete bust when 'Boomer' hits only .231 in 169 plate appearances in his one year with Chicago.

    1982 - Dale Murphy wins the National League Most Valuable Player Award, becoming the first Brave to be so honored since Hank Aaron in 1957. The center fielder hit .281 with 36 home runs, 109 RBI, 113 runs, and 23 stolen bases.  Murphy will win the award again next season becoming only the fourth player to be honored in consecutive seasons.

    1983 - Willie Wilson, Willie Aikens and Jerry Martin become the first active players ever to be sent to prison for drug violations. The judge hands down three-month sentences to the three members of the Royals for attempting to purchase c0caine.

    1987 - George Bell becomes the first Blue Jay ever to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award, edging Detroit's Alan Trammell, 332-311. Bell hit .308 with 47 home runs and a league-leading 134 RBI.

    1992 - Colorado selects right-hander David Nied from the Braves as their first player in the expansion draft. The 23-year old right-hander, who was 3-0 for Atlanta last season, will pitch the first regular-season game in Rockies history, losing to the Mets and Dwight Gooden at Shea Stadium, 3-0.

    1998 - Atlanta's Tom Glavine edges San Diego closer Trevor Hoffman for the National League Cy Young Award. It is the sixth time in the past eight seasons that a Braves pitcher has won the award.

    2000 - Pittsburgh catcher Jason Kendall signs the richest deal in Pirates' history. The $60 million, six-year contract extension, which includes a $4 million signing bonus, starts with a base salary of $6 million in 2002 and peaks at $13 million in 2007.

    2002 - After dropping the first three contests in Japan, the American Major League team wins their fourth consecutive game beating the Japanese stars, 4-2. The victory gives the United States, which hasn't lost a series to its Asian hosts since 1990, its fifth straight winning tour in the Land of the Rising Sun.

    2004 - After being wined and dined by Tiger legend Al Kaline and owner Peter Ilitch, free agent Troy Percival signs a two-year, $12 million deal surprising everyone, including his agent, by announcing he will pitch for Detroit next season. Before the preliminary meeting in the Motor City, the former Angels' closer had been scheduled to meet with the Indians and Cubs later in the week.

    2006 - Filling the final managerial opening in the big leagues, Bob Geren is hired by the A's to pilot the defending AL West champions. The rookie skipper, a veteran minor league manager, replaces Ken Macha who was dismissed after Oakland was defeated in the ALCS.

    2006 - Frank Thomas agrees to a $18.12 million, two-year deal to join the Blue Jays. After spending 16 years with the White Sox, the 38-year old designated hitter had a comeback season with the A's last season leading the club into the playoffs batting .270 with 39 homers and driving in 114 runs.

    2008 - Despite nursing a sore elbow during the season, Albert Pujols (.357, 37, 116) wins his second Most Valuable Player award of his eight-year major league career. The 28-year old All-Star first baseman of the fourth-place Cardinals, the only player listed on every ballot, receives 18 of the 32 first-place votes cast by the BBWAA to outpoint runner-up Ryan Howard of the World Champions Phillies, 369 -308.

    2008 - Replacing the discontinued annual exhibition game between major league teams, a new Hall of Fame Classic will be played in Cooperstown featuring the game’s legends and old-timers. The Hall of Fame announces the contest will be played on Fathers Day (June 21) and will be part of a weekend of activities and programs, which will include a skills clinic, a hitting contest and autograph sessions.

    2009 - With 25 of the 28 first-place votes cast by the writers, Zack Greinke (16-8, 2.16) easily outdistances Seattle's Felix Hernandez to win the American League Cy Young Award to join Steve Carlton (1972 Phillies) as the only hurlers to win the prestigious pitching prize toiling for a last place club. The Royals' right-hander will have another big day this Saturday when he marries his high school sweetheart Emily Kuchar, a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

    2010 - In the second trade of the general managers' meetings, the A's trade Rajai Davis to the Blue Jays for a pair of right-handed minor leaguers, Trystan Magnuson and Daniel Farquhar. Last week, Oakland acquired outfielder David DeJesus from the Royals, making their former fleet outfielder expendable.

    2010 - After being the runner-up five times, Ron Gardenhire is finally named the American League's Manager of the Year. The Twins skipper, the only AL field boss listed on all 28 ballots, led his team to its sixth Central Division title in nine seasons.

    2010 - Bud Black beats Cincinnati skipper Dusty Baker by one point for the National League Manager of the Year honors. The Padres manager kept his underdog team in the playoff race until the last day of the season when they were knocked out of contention by San Francisco, the eventual World Champions.

    2011 - Clayton Kershaw is named by the BBWAA as the National League's Cy Young Award recipient, easily pointing Philadelphia's Roy Halladay who had won the prestigious pitching prize last year. The 23-year old southpaw earned the NL's triple crown by posting a 2.28 ERA, striking out 248 opponents, and notching the most victories in the circuit, along with Arizona's Ian Kennedy, with a record of 21-5.

    2011 - The long-delayed sale of the Astros from Drayton McLane to Jim Crane is unanimously approved by the baseball owners. The deal was dependent on the new owner's acceptance of the franchise being switch from the NL Central to the AL West in 2013, a move that reportedly lowered the sale price from $680 million to $615 million.

    2014 - The Braves trade Gold Glove outfielder Jayson Heyward and setup man Jordan Walden to the Cardinals for right-handers Shelby Miller and 22 year-old minor leaguer Tyrell Jenkins. The move appears to be the start of a rebuilding period for Atlanta under the team’s new general manager John Hart.

    On November 16 in Baseball History...

    1912 - In failing health, Giants president John T. Brush dies in his private car aboard a train en route to California. Harry Hempstead, his son in-law, will take over the club.

    1960 - National League batting champion Dick Groat is named league Most Valuable Player, outpolling Pirates teammate Don Hoak 276-162.

    1961 - The circular Mets logo, designed by sports cartoonist Ray Gatto is unveiled. The design, which represents all five boroughs with various symbols, is blue and orange, the team colors of the Dodgers and Giants, the franchises which left the 'Big Apple' and moved to the West Coast leaving New York without a National League representative.

    1962 - Braves' general manager John McHale and six other investors buy the team from Lou Perini. William Bartholomay, an insurance executive, will be chairman of the board.

    1966 - Pirates outfielder Roberto Clemente is named Most Valuable Player in the National League. He edges Sandy Koufax by ten votes.

    1966 - The Dodgers finish their tour of Japan with the worst results ever compiled by an American big league team. The team loses the last four games of the trip, returning to the West Coast with a mediocre 9-8-1 record against their Japanese opponents.

    1976 - The Angels acquire Don Baylor as a free agent. The Austin, Texas native, who played with the A's last season after being dealt by the Orioles in the Reggie Jackson trade, will become the first Angel to win the MVP Award (1979) until Vladimir Guerrero cops the honor in 2004.

    1977 - Rod Carew wins the American League Most Valuable Player award. The Twins first baseman led the league in runs (128), hits (239), triples (16), and batting average (.388).

    1979 - Former Red and Expo Tony Perez signs as a re-entry free agent with the Red Sox. The future Hall of Famer will spend three seasons in Boston compiling a .266 batting average while appearing in 304 games.

    1988 - Jose Canseco, who led the circuit in homers, RBIs, and slugging percentage, is the unanimous choice of the BBWAA for the MVP of the American League. The A's right fielder is the first player to be selected unanimously since Oakland outfielder Reggie Jackson was chosen by the writers in 1973.

    1989 - Kevin Bass, who batted .300 for the Astros last season, signs as a free agent with the National League champion Giants. The 30-year old outfielder will hit .249 during his three seasons with San Francisco.

    1995 - Boston slugger Mo Vaughn (.300, 39, 126), taking 12 first-place votes, wins the American League Most Valuable Player award, edging Cleveland's Albert Belle in the BBWAA voting, 308-301. The Red Sox first baseman becomes the eighth player in franchise history to win the award.

    1998 - Toronto's Roger Clemens becomes the first pitcher to win five Cy Young Awards when he is named the American League's top pitcher.

    2000 - Jeff Kent (334, 33, 125) outpoints teammate Barry Bonds to become the National League's MVP. The Giants' infielder becomes the first second baseman to win the honor since Ryne Sandberg of the Cubs won the award in 1984.

    2001 - In a four-page decision, Hennepin County District Judge Harry Seymour Crump rules the Twins must continue to play the home portion of their games at the Metrodome next season and prohibits Twins owner Carl Pohlad from selling the team unless the new owner also agrees to play next season's games in the team's current ball park. The lower court decision, which is likely to be appealed, is the result of MLB's decision to contract two teams, one of which is likely to be Minnesota.

    2002 - After piloting the Giants for ten years and winning this season's National League pennant, Dusty Baker inks a four-year deal to manage the Cubs. Chicago, an organization which hasn't been to the World Series since 1945, made it clear the 53-year old three-time NL Manager of the Year was the team's first choice to the lead the way.

    2002 - The New York Yankees and the Yomiuri Giants sign an agreement to form a working relationship. Being the most successful teams in their respective leagues, the organizations hope to establish scouting and marketing ties which will benefit both teams.

    2004 - Receiving 21 of the 28 first-place votes, Vladimir Guerrero (.337, 39, 126) wins the 2004 American League's MVP Award. The 28-year old former Expo outfielder signed as a free agent with the Angels, after the Mets refused to guarantee his salary based on advice from their medical staff.

    2005 - In a close vote, the Baseball Writers' Association of America selects Albert Pujols (.330, 41,117) as the National League’s MVP. The Cardinal first baseman outpoints Braves’ center fielder Andruw Jones, 378-351.

    2006 - The Nationals name Manny Acta as the new manager of the team, replacing 71-year-old Frank Robinson - the oldest pilot in baseball. The 37-year-old Dominican, who served as the Mets' third-base coach for the last two seasons, is now the youngest skipper in the majors.

    2007 - Scott Boras's reputation takes another hit when free agent Kenny Rogers, formerly with the Tigers, informs big league teams that he has dismissed his agent and is now representing himself in contract talks. Earlier in the week, another client, Alex Rodriguez reached out to the Yankees to start negotiations without his involvement.

    2007 - After a five-year departure to play for the Mets, Tom Glavine returns to the Braves, agreeing to an $8 million, one year deal. The 41-year old southpaw, a two-time Cy Young winner with the team, left Atlanta in 2002, after negotiations as a free agent became acrimonious with team president Stan Kasten.

    2009 - Chris Coghlan edges Phillies right-hander J.A. Happ, the only player named on all 32 ballots, to become the third Marlin in franchise history, along with Dontrelle Willis (2003) and Hanley Ramirez (2006), to win the National League Rookie of the Year Award. The 24-year old leadoff hitter, a second baseman in the minors, hit .321 in 128 games playing mostly left field after being called up in May.

    2009 - Andrew Bailey is named the American League Rookie of the Year, the eighth A’s player in franchise history to cop the honor. The 25-year-old right-handed closer, after struggling in Double-A as a minor league starter last season, compiled 26 saves with a 1.84 ERA for Oakland.

    2009 - Wally Backman is hired by the Mets to manage the Brooklyn Cyclones, their farm team in the New York-Penn League. The team's new skipper, who played a key role with the 1986 World Series championship club, had been given the Diamondbacks job in November of 2004, but was fired shortly after the New York Times revealed the former second baseman had been arrested twice and had financial difficulties.

    2010 - The Marlins deal Dan Uggla to the Braves for infielder Omar Infante and left-hander Mike Dunn. Atlanta's acquisition of two-time All-Star second baseman, who hit .287 with 33 homers and 105 RBIs last season, could be a signal the team is uncertain about Chipper Jones' status for next year after having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left knee.

    2010 - Roy Halladay joins Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and Gaylord Perry as the fifth pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues. The Phillies right-hander, obtained as a free agent in the off-season, unanimously cops the National League honor after posting a 21-10 record along with a 2.44 ERA during the major-league leading 250.2 innings he hurled this season.

    2011 - Joe Maddon wins the American League Manager of the Year Award for the second time after guiding the Rays to a 91-71 record. Thanks to Boston's late-season collapse, Tampa Bay overcame a nine-game deficit at the beginning of September to win the American League Wild Card.

    2011 - In his first full season as a skipper, Kirk Gibson is named the National League's manager of the year. The 54-year-old field boss, who received 28 of the 32 first-place votes from the writers, led the Diamondbacks to a run-away NL Western Division title with a 94-68 record.

    2012 - At Busch Stadium, the Cardinals unveil a jersey that for the first time in eight decades will feature the words "St. Louis” in script on the front. The Redbirds also announce team will wear red hats on the road instead of navy and their logo will have more-detailed cardinals on the bat.

    2012 - The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum announces the winners of its Legacy Awards naming Mike Trout as its choice for the AL's Oscar Charleston Award, recognizing the 20 year-old outfielder as league's most valuable player. The Angels freshman is also the recipent of the Larry Doby Award, an honor given to the top rookie of each circuit.

    2015 - The Texas Rangers traded Leonys Martin and Anthony Bass to the Seattle Mariners in exchange for Tom Wilhelmsen, James Jones and a player to be named later; the Texas Rangers received Patrick Kivlehan (December 2, 2015).

    2016 - The Houston Astros signed Charlie Morton as a free agent.

    On November 15 in Baseball History...

    1886 - The American Association's Red Stockings deal rookie catcher Jack Boyle and $400 to the Browns in exchange for outfielder Hugh Nicol. The transaction is the first recorded trade in major league history.

    1908 - Cuban pitcher Jose Mendez one-hits the visiting Reds, 1-0. During the remainder of the the 14-game barnstorming trip, the 21-year old Almendares right-hander will throw another seven shutout innings in relief in two weeks, and then four days after that tosses a second complete-game shutout, recording an amazing 25 consecutive scoreless innings against the first major league club to ever to play on the island.

    1933 - The Phillies and Cardinals swap catchers with hard-hitting Virgil Davis going to St. Louis and Jimmy Wilson being sent to the 'City of Brotherly Love'. Philadelphia makes the deal to have the former Redbird backstop become the team's player-manager, a position 'Ace' will hold for five seasons.

    1946 - Ted Williams is picked as the American League Most Valuable Player. A week later the National League names Stan Musial for the honor.

    1951 - Giant outfielder Willie Mays and Yankee infielder Gil McDougald are named as the Rookie of the Year in their respective leagues. Neither player was listed on their club's spring training rosters.

    1961 - Roger Maris, with a record-shattering 61 home runs, is voted American League Most Valuable Player with 202 votes to 198 for Mickey Mantle and 157 for Baltimore's Jim Gentile. Maris wins the award for the second consecutive year.

With a writer putting the light-hitting infielder Cesar Tovar (.267, 6, 47) of the Twins on the top of his ballot, the 28-year old Red Sox outfielder is denied of being the unanimous choice for the award.

    1968 - Jim Bouton agrees to a one-year deal worth $22,000 to play for the expansion Pilots, who had purchased the right-hander from New York last month for $20,000 with his previous team agreeing to pick up $12,000 of the salary. The knuckleballer will use his tenure with the club, and the Astros after he is traded to Houston, to chronicle the 1969 season, along with stories from his Yankee years, in his groundbreaking book, Ball Four, a publication which will not endear him to the baseball community, especially with his former Bronx Bomber teammates.

    1972 - Dick Allen of the White Sox wins the American League Most Valuable Player Award by an overwhelming margin over Joe Rudi of the A's. Allen led the league in home runs (37), RBI (113), walks (99), and slugging average (.603).

    1989 - Bret Saberhagen becomes the fourth pitcher ever to win the American League Cy Young Award twice, getting 27 of a possible 28 first-place votes for his 23-6, 2.16 ERA season. He also won the award in 1985.

    2005 - The players' association and owners agree to toughen the current penalties (10 days-first offense, 30 days-second offense and 60 days for the third time) for the use of steroids using a 50-game suspension for a first offense, 100 games for a second and then lifetime ban for a third. The agreement also adds the much needed testing for amphetamines which will result with mandatory additional testing if the test is positive the first time, with a second offense drawing a 25-game suspension, and a third offense meaning an 80 game suspension.

    2005 - Alex Rodriguez wins the American League MVP Award for the second time in three seasons.

    2007 - Joining Randy Jones (1976), Gaylord Perry (1978), and Mark Davis (1989), Jake Peavy (19-6, 2.54) becomes the fourth Padres pitcher to win the National League Cy Young Award. The 26-year-old right-hander, who led the senior circuit in wins, ERA and strike outs with 240 K's, is the unanimous choice of the BBWAA being named first on all 32 of the writers' ballots.

    2010 - Returning to the organization that gave him his professional start, Ryne Sandberg is hired to manage the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Phillies. The diplomatic Hall of Fame second baseman, a finalist to replace Lou Piniella as the Cubs manager, decided it would be in the best interest of everyone involved not to continue managing in the Chicago minor league system.

    2010 - Buster Posey becomes the sixth catcher, joining Johnny Bench (1968), Earl Williams (1971), Benito Santiago (1987), Mike Piazza (1993) and Geovany Soto (2008) to win the National League Rookie of the Year Award.

    2010 - The Phillies and Jose Contreras agree to a $5.5 million, two-year deal that will keep the 38-year-old right-hander in Philadelphia.

    2010 - The Reds and Ramon Hernandez agree to a one-year, $3 million deal. The 34-year old catcher started in 85 games behind the plate last season, and along with Ryan Hanigan and Corky Miller, was part of a trio that lead the National League backstops with 168 hits and a .296 batting average.

    2010 - Replacing John Russell, Clint Hurdle becomes the Pirates' sixth manager since 1992, their last winning season. The The 53-year-old skipper, who managed the Rockies to the National League pennant in 2007, inherits a team that lost 105 games last season and that has averaged 97 losses over the last six campaigns.

    2011 - Justin Verlander (24-5, 2.40) is selected as the unanimous winner of the American League Cy Young award. The 28-year old Tiger right-hander, who captured the circuit's pitching triple crown, leading the AL in victories, earned run average and strikeouts, easily outdistances runners-up that include L.A.'s Jered Weaver, Tampa Bay's James Shields, the New York's C. C. Sabathia.

    2012 - Buster Posey (.306, 24, 103), whose 2011 season ended with a severe injury after a horrific collision with a runner at home plate, wins the National League MVP Award.

    2014 - Four Japanese hurlers combine to hurl a no-hitter, beating a team consisting of six major league All-Stars, 4-0. The victory, the first no-hitter in the Japan All-Star Series when Randy Johnson and Chuck Finley combined on a hitless game in 1990, clinches the series for the host country for the first time in 24 years.

    2015 - Commissioner Bud Selig announces Petco Park will be the site of the All-Star Game in 2016, making it the first time that the same league will play host in consecutive seasons since Pittsburgh's PNC Park and San Francisco's AT&T Park were the venues in 2006-07.
