Return to Homepage
- The Giants name Dusty Baker as manager to replace Roger Craig. (taken from Baseball Library
- Traded Billy Hatcher

) to the Houston Astros. Received Jerry Mumphrey
Wow, I don't have the slightest recollection of Engel at all. Anybody help me here?
A very slow news day in Cubs history. Baseball Library lists today as the day we acquired Jimmy Sheckard from the Brooklyn Superbas, but Baseball-Reference lists that date as December 30th, and I'll cover it, then.
So another real yawner of a day.
Here's a question: What Items do you hope will join the list of events that happened on December 16th, when five years from now it comes time for me to do the December 16th, 2010 TICH edition?
