The Yankees trade Joe Gordon, a future Hall of Fame second baseman who will leave the Bronx after playing in precisely 1,000 games and collecting exactly 1,000 hits, to the Indians for Allie Reynolds, who is called Superchief by his teammates due to his Creek heritage. The trade works well for both teams when Cleveland’s newest infielder plays a major role in the Tribe’s World Championship next season, with the Yankeess’ recently arrived right-hander compiling an amazing 131-60 (.686) record during his eight years with the team.
