"On this day in 1965, the Cincinnati Reds trade outfielder Frank Robinson to the Baltimore Orioles, in exchange for the pitchers Milt Pappas and Jack Baldschun and the outfielder Dick Simpson."
Frank joined Brooks Robinson and the Orioles became the best team in the AL. They played in 4 World Series, winning in 1966 and 1970. They lost to the Mets in '69 and Pirates in '71.
The Reds thought that Frank Robinson was "old" but he proved them wrong in Baltimore. He won the Triple Crown in 1966 and MVP that year.
