I Love Stats: Yankees Trade Joe Gordon


I have done these posts a few times now because like the title states, I love stats. I love it when the stars align and things end the way they should. For instance, Derek Jeter finished his postseason career with an even 200 hits and Mariano Rivera finished with an even 42 saves, the number he wore on his back.


On this day in 1946 the New York Yankees traded second baseman Joe Gordon to the Cleveland Indians for right handed starting pitcher Allie Reynolds. The future Hall of Famer ended his Yankees career with exactly 1,000 games played and exactly 1,000 hits.

  1. Joe Gordon....I know a bit about him, regarding his Yankee career.
    But what I do know is that he married a very wealthy women.
    And he lived to his end, in a top notch area, here on Long Island .
    Good man.

  2. Yes, he was a kind man and would talk to the "Kitchen Trash" all the time, before the war.
    He was also a damn good 2nd baseman.
