New York Yankees submarine pitcher Carl Mays, who amassed 53 victories in 1920-21 (and whose pitch killed Cleveland's Ray Chapman in 1920), is sold to the Reds for $85,000. Mays never saw eye-to-eye with diminutive manager Miller Huggins in New York. He'll go 56-36 and close out his career in Cincinnati.
