1966 The Dodgers trade Derrell Griffith and two-time batting champ Tommy Davis, who missed most of 1965 after severely breaking his ankle, to the Mets for Ron Hunt and Jim Hickman, who leaves New York the franchise's all-time home run leader with 60 round-trippers. The injured outfielder continues his hitting prowess, following a solid comeback season in LA with a very productive one-year stay in New York, leading the team in almost every offensive category.
1995 Charley Smith, the player traded to the Yankees from the Cardinals for Roger Maris in 1967, dies at the age of 57 in Reno, Nevada. In 1965, the third baseman was dealt to the Redbirds by the Mets, along with southpaw Al Jackson, to obtain Ken Boyer.
