MLB 1990s Trivia Facts
Dave Winfield Traded for Expensive Dinner... In late August 1994, MLB was over two weeks into a strike that interrupted the season. Just before the waiver trade deadline expired, the Minnesota Twins traded aging outfielder/designated hitter Dave Winfield to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later. Two weeks after the trade, on Sept. 14, the rest of the 1994 season was canceled, so Winfield never played for the Indians that season, and no player was ever named in exchange. Later on, executives from both the Indians and Twins got together for a dinner, with Indians’ execs picking up the dinner tab, making Winfield the only player in MLB history ever traded for a five-star meal.
Tiger Stadium opened for the Tigers on April 20, 1912. In 1993, the ballpark saw the 10,000th hit. Tiger Stadium saw the Tigers play in their last game on September 27, 1999. Kansas City Royal Greg Gagne was the player who hit number 10,000, and the Royals went on to win the game 12-6.
The Marlins began in Major League Baseball in 1993, finishing in sixth place in the NL East of seven teams. In 1997, they finished the season with a 92-70 record, good enough to enter the playoffs as a wildcard. The Marlins beat the Giants in the NLDS, then the Braves in the NLCS, then put the Cleveland Indians down in the World Series, four games to three.
