Game 191 | April 7, 1971 | Calvin Griffith, Frank Lane
Shortly before his 75th birthday, "Trader" Lane was hired as general manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. He made more than 400 trades over his long career in baseball--some 241 with the White Sox alone. He traded future Hall of Famers and major stars such as Norm Cash, Rocky Colavito, Roger Maris, Red Schoendienst and Early Wynn, and once traded his manager, Joe Gordon, to Detroit for their manager, Jimmy Dykes.
