Very nice win by the Stars last night....

This day in baseball history....

1954

Willie Mays becomes first player to win Most Valuable Player Award in his first full year in the majors when he easily outdistances Reds first baseman Ted Kluszewski for the honor. The 23-year-old Giants center fielder made his big league debut at the end of May in 1951, but missed the last two seasons due to his military service in the U.S. Army.

1982

Tom Seaver's trade back to New York from the Reds is completed when 'Tom Terrific' comes to contract terms with the Mets. Cincinnati obtains pitcher Charlie Puleo and two minor leaguers, Lloyd McClendon and Jason Felice, in exchange for the 'Franchise'

2003

Miguel Tejada agrees to a six-year $72 million contract with the Orioles making it the largest deal in the history of the franchise. The shortstop batted .287 with 27 home runs while driving in 106 runs last season for the western division champions Oakland A's.

2009 John Lackey and the Red Sox come to terms on a $82.5 million, five-year deal. The 31-year old right-hander, who compiled a 102-71 record along with a 3.81 ERA in eight seasons in the major leagues, all with the Angels, adds depth to a strong rotation which includes Josh Beckett, Daisuke Matsuzaka, and Jon Lester.
