This Day In New York Yankees History 9/6

On this day in 1973 the Yankees got rid of both of the Alou brothers on the same day. Felipe Alou was sold to the Montreal Expos and Matty Alou was traded to the St. Louis Cardinals.

On this day in 1981 Yankees owner George Steinbrenner fired manager Gene Michael in what he described as the "most agonizing" decision the Boss had ever made. This decision came after Michael made comments about his inability to tolerate Steinbrenner after constant threats of his dismissal. Bob Lemon would replace Michael and Gene would later become a Yankees General Manager.
