Remember the Midnight Massacre trades?

Thirty years ago, one of the more unusual events in major league history took place. On August 4, 1982, Joel Youngblood became the only player to ever to get a hit for two different teams in two different cities on the same day. What’s more, Youngblood got those hits off two future Hall of Famers: the Cubs’ Ferguson Jenkins and Phillies’ Steve Carlton. The strange day was the result of a deal between the New York Mets and Montreal Expos. The team from Flushing sent the versatile Youngblood to Montreal in exchange for a player to be named later (left-hander Tom Gorman). The day the Mets traded everyone including Seaver. Good article down memory lane.
