This Day in Baseball History:
December 15, 1900 > In a swap of future Hall-of-Famers, the Giants re-acquire 20-year-old hurler Christy Mathewson from the Reds for 29-year-old right-hander Amos Rusie. Though Rusie had been one of baseball's dominant pitchers of the 1890's, he will make only three appearances and win no games for the Reds. Mathewson, meanwhile, will go on to win 373 games and lead the Giants to five NL pennants.
