This Day in Baseball History
On December 11, 1973, the Chicago Cubs trade third baseman Ron Santo to the Chicago White Sox for pitcher Steve Stone and three other players. One week earlier, Santo had vetoed a deal to the California Angels, becoming the first player to reject a trade under the new “Ten and Five” rule.
