1938 The Reds acquire Bucky Walters from the Phillies in exchange for catcher Spud Davis, southpaw Al Hollingsworth, and $50,000. Cincinnati's new right-hander will play a major role in the team's two consecutive National League pennants when he wins 27 games in 1939 and has another 22 victories in 1940.
2005 In a Fenway Park pregame ceremony prior to the interleague series against the Reds, who have not played in Boston since the 1975 World Series, the Red Sox pay tribute to Carlton Fisk and his 12th-inning Game 6 walk-off homer by naming the bright yellow stanchion in left field, where the ball landed, the Fisk Foul Pole. The former hometown hero enjoys the festivities from the Monster Seats as the crowd cheers when the home run is replayed on the scoreboard to the tune of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.
