This Day in Baseball History:
March 22, 1972 > The New York Yankees make one of the best trades in franchise history, acquiring reliever Sparky Lyle from the Boston Red Sox for infielder Danny Cater. During the course of his seven seasons in the Bronx, the colorful Lyle will record 141 saves, win a Cy Young Award and help the Yankees capture back-to-back World Series titles.
