The St. Louis Cardinals trade pitcher Dizzy Dean to the Chicago Cubs for pitchers Curt Davis and Clyde Shoun and $200,000. Dean would win 16 games over four seasons for the Cubs. Dean had won 27 games in 1937 for St. Louis, but he toe broke in the 1937 All Star game, when Earl Averill hit a line drive back up the middle . He tried to come back too soon and changed his pitching motion and then hurt his arm.
