It seems simple enough on paper: the Boston Americans buy outfielder George Stone from the Washington Senators; the St. Louis Browns reclaim Frank Huelsman from Washington, where he had been on loan, and send him along with Jesse Burkett to Boston for Stone. Boston then sends Huelsman back to Washington in payment for Stone. This is Huelsman’s fourth trade in eight months and his playing for four American League teams in one season in 1904 will not be matched until Paul Lehner does it in 1951.
