1987 HEADLINE: Dennis Eckersley Traded To Oakland A’s
On this day in 1987, the Chicago Cubs traded future Hall of Famer, Dennis Eckersley to the Oakland Athletics.
As part of a 5-player, 2-team trade, Eckersely and Dan Rohn were shipped to the Oakland A’s in exchange for Brian Guinn, Dave Wilder, and Mark Leonette.
Now I don’t know about you, but I would have to say that the A’s got the better end of that deal… You agree, right?? 🙂
