November 15 in Cardinals History

The Phillies and Cardinals, in 1933, swap catchers, with hard-hitting Virgil Davis going to St. Louis and Jimmy Wilson being sent to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Philadelphia makes the deal to have the former Redbird backstop become the team’s player-manager, a position ‘Ace’ will hold for five seasons.
