On this day

                        2020: The Kansas City Royals obtain Cuban Ronald Bolaños and Dominican outfielder Franchy Cordero from the Padres in exchange for pitcher Tim Hill. This is the first trade since “Summer Camp” opened after the long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Trivia:

Speaking of Tony Taylor and in honor of his memory, he is one of five Cubans with at least two thousand hits in the Major Leagues (2,007). The others are Rafael Palmeiro, Tony Pérez, Dagoberto Campaneris and Orestes Miñoso.

Quote of the day:

“Love is the most important thing in the world, but baseball is pretty good too.”
