1966 The Yankee trade veteran third baseman Clete Boyer to the Braves for outfielder Bill Robinson and right-hander Chi-Chi Olivo. Atlanta's new 29 year-old infielder, obtained to fill the void created by Eddie Matthew's departure to Houston, will have a very productive year, hitting a career-high 26 home runs and driving in 96 runs for the seventh-place club.
