This Day in Baseball History
On December 10, 1971, the California Angels engineer one of the best trades in franchise history, acquiring Nolan Ryan in a five-player deal that sends shortstop Jim Fregosi to the New York Mets. Ryan will go on to win 324 games and hurl a record seven no-hitters, three of them coming with the Angels.
