This Day In New York Yankees History 11/3

On this day in 1992 the Cincinnati Reds traded Paul O'Neill  and Joe DeBerry to the New York Yankees for Roberto Kelly. This was an absolute steal for the Yankees as O'Neill would be a mainstay with the Yankees in right field until his retirement in 2002. O'Neill would be a part of four World Series championship teams and was also on the field during the greatest World Series of all time in my opinion in 2001.

On this day in 2001, and this is not Yankees history that we are going to want to remember, the Arizona Diamondbacks bashed out 21 hits in the first six innings in Game 6 of the 2001 World Series with the New York Yankees setting a new World Series record. The previous record was 20 when the New York Giants beat up on the New York Yankees in 1921 and the St. Louis Cardinals beat up on the Boston Red Sox in 1946.
