On this day in 1933, the Reds traded Leo Durocher, Dutch Henry, and Jack Ogden to the Cardinals for Sparky Adams, Paul Derringer, and Allyn Stout. This was a truly outstanding trade for the Reds as Derringer went on to have an excellent decade in Cincinnati while none of the other players did much after the deal. Durocher is known for his Hall of Fame managerial career, but he was a marginal player.
