On this Day 1962

The Indians trade Gold Glove first baseman Vic Power and left-handed pitcher Dick Stigman(image is of Stigman pitching to Maris with Mantle on deck 1961) to the Twins for pitcher 20-game loser Pedro Ramos, who will compile a 26-30 record during his 2+ seasons with the Tribe. Power will contribute 2+ solid seasons with Minnesota batting .278, and their new southpaw will post a .702 winning percentage, the best in the American League this season, winning 12 of 17 decisions.
