1968 The Cardinals have a busy day on the trading block, making deals with the Red Sox and Padres, sending infielder Dick Schofield to Boston for right-hander Gary Waslewski. In a separate trade, the Redbirds trade third baseman Ed Spiezio, outfielder Ron Davis, backstop Dan Breeden, and pitching prospect Phil Knuckles to San Diego for right-hander Dave Giusti.
2007 Dick Williams, who managed in Boston, Oakland, California, Montreal, San Diego, and Seattle, is elected into the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee. Along with Bill McKechnie, another Hall of Famer, the fiery skipper is the only other manager to appear in the World Series with three different teams (1967 Red Sox, 1972-73 A's, 1984 Padres).
2008 Dustin Pedroia agrees to a $40.5 million, six-year contract extension, which could keep him in a Red Sox uniform through the 2014 season. The 25-year-old second baseman earned only $457,000 last season and has already won the Rookie of the Year award, an MVP, a Gold Glove, a Silver Slugger, and a World Championship in his first two years in the major leagues.
