2005 Among thousands of high-spirited Red Sox and Cubs fans, the Baseball Hall of Fame, with 48 of its members sitting on the dais, enshrines Wade Boggs and Ryne Sandberg. Also inducted are Padres announcer Jerry Coleman, winner of the Ford C. Frick Award, and sportswriter and broadcast analyst Peter Gammons, recipient of the J.G. Taylor Spink Award.
2007 The trading deadline prompts a busy day for the Braves when they deal eight players in three different transactions, including obtaining Mark Teixeira and southpaw reliever Ron Mahay from the Rangers for the highly touted rookie backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia and four minor leaguers. Atlanta also gets bullpen help from the Royals and Padres, with Octavio Dotel and Royce Ring joining the team for Kyle Davies, who will now pitch for Kansas City, and Wil Ledezma and Will Startup go to San Diego.
2009 In a stunning last-minute deal, the White Sox obtain Jake Peavy from the Padres for four pitching prospects, Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Dexter Carter, and Adam Russell. The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner, presently on the disabled list, had previously refused to waive his no-trade clause to join Chicago in a similar deal proposed in May.
