One of the greatest trades in Cubs history!!
Cubs trade Ivan Dejesus to the Phillies for Ryne Sandberg & Larry Bowa. Sandberg got his first career MLB hit as Phillie against the Cubs on September 27th, 1981 against Mike Krukow in a 14-0 Cubs victory (2nd game of a doubleheader).
Happy birthday to Mr. Cub, Ernie Banks. Banks won the MVP award twice with the Cubs. He was a 14-time all-star and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1977. He passed away in 2015.
He shares a birthday with another great hitting pitcher, Babe Ruth.
Happy birthday to Burt Hooton. His Cubs career started off incredibly well. In late September of 1971, he pitched 2 complete games, one a 3-hit shutout and the other a 15 strikeout game. He topped both in his first start of 1972, pitching a no-hitter at the age of 22.
