Ross Grimsley (card # 1)
I can't start to recap his career in a few paragraphs, especially when you can easily peruse it at baseball-reference. But one thing that caught my eye was his trade on December 4, 1973.
Traded by the Cincinnati Reds with Wally Williams (minors) to the Baltimore Orioles for Bill Wood (minors), Junior Kennedy and Merv Rettenmund.This really isn't that amazing or interesting. Minor leaguers, players, teams. Trades like this happen all the time.
I was intrigued by the double letter sequences in the players' names.
Five players, all with at least one double letter sequence. I know of no other trade that accomplishes this feat.
Ross, I tip my cap to you.
