This Week In Baseball History

Aug 8, 2018

Frantic Frank Lane was one of the most influential figures in the Major Leagues during the 1950s, shaping two of the decade's powerhouse franchises and exchanging nearly 700 players with other organizations. But he didn't limit himself to just players, as 58 years ago this week, he sent his manager to the Tigers for their skipper. Mike and Bill look at how this trade came about, how it played out, and whether, for all his activity, Lane was good at his job. Also, happy birthday John Olerud and Ken Phelps!
