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.
