27-year-old Tiger pitcher John Hiller drives himself to the hospital after suffering three heart attacks while relaxing at home. After recuperating and spending time as a coach for the Lakeland club, the Canadian will come charging back in 1973, lowering his ERA to 1.44 and establishing a new American League record with 38 saves en route to earning the Comeback Player of the Year and eventually becoming Detroit’s all-time leader in saves with 125, before retiring at the end of the 1980 season.

In one of the worst trades ever made in baseball history, the Orioles send pitchers Curt Schilling and Pete Harnish along with outfielder Steve Finley to the Astros for first baseman Glenn Davis. Davis, who averaged 27 home runs in six seasons playing in the Astrodome with Houston, will hit only 24 dingers in three injury-filled years as Schilling becomes one of the most dominant pitchers in the game, and Harnish and Finley develop into solid major league performers.
