Hall of Famer traded for a Dinner

Worth more than a mouthful

 

Hall of Famer
traded for
a Dinner

 

 

Dave Winfield

In 1994 when the players' strike was initiated, Cleveland agreed to terms with Minnesota to trade a player to be named later for Dave Winfield. 

The season was canceled and Winfield never played with his new team and the player to be named later was not acquired. The two teams decided to close the matter with a dinner.

Winfield played only a few games with Cleveland the next season and thereafter retired.

 250 players are in the Hall of Fame, Winfield was inducted in 2001.

 15 ballplayers have had 15+ campaigns with 20+ longballs (Winfield is one of them).

 12 All-Star Game consecutive selections for Winfield, and in those exhibitions he established the record for Doubles (7).
