On November 29, 1966 — The Dodgers trade two-time batting champ Tommy Davis and outfielder Derrell Griffith to the Mets for outfielder Jim Hickman and infielder Ron Hunt.

Hickman leaves New York as the franchise’s all-time home run leader with 60.

Davis, who missed most of 1965 due to severely breaking his ankle in early May, continues his hitting prowess, following a solid comeback season in LA with a very productive one-year stay in New York when he leads the team almost every offensive category.
