1965: The day that Frank Robinson became an Oriole!

Before free agency and big contracts, major league teams used to make trades, big trades.  One of the biggest happened today in 1965 or when Robinson was traded to the Orioles for Milt Pappas and other players.  
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.
