In one of their most important acquisitions ever, Cleveland Indians general manager Billy Evans sends $40,000 and two players to the San Francisco Seals (PCL) for outfielder Earl Averill. A future Hall of Famer, Averill will play 11 years in Cleveland. Averill’s number 3 was retired by the team in 1975.
