On this date in history, the Braves traded George Crowe for Corky Valentine and Bob “Hurricane” Hazle. A journeyman who got a two-month supply of fairy dust in the last weeks of 1957 and was out of baseball within two years. He didn’t do much except win us the pennant. And that is how a 26-year old rookie from South Carolina turns into an immortal.
