After unsuccessful attempts to engineer a trade with the Chicago Cubs‚ the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers‚ Giants owner Charles Stoneham announces "that in the best interests of the team" he has traded Rogers Hornsby to the Boston Braves for Shanty Hogan, a promising young catcher, and journeyman OF Jimmy Welsh. Stoneham was not a fan of Hornsby abrasive style as fill-in manager for McGraw this past season‚ and thought that Hornsby welched on gambling debts. Hornsby was sued by a gambler‚ but in a civil case decided the previous December 21st in Missouri‚ where gambling is illegal‚ was found not liable. Hornsby will lead the NL with a .387 batting average in 1928.
