On November 25, 1969 — The Cincinnati Reds trade outfielder Alex Johnson and infielder Chico Ruiz to the California Angels for pitchers Pedro Borbón, Jim McGlothlin and Vern Geishert. The talented but troubled Johnson, who hit over .300 in his two seasons with the Reds, will win the American League batting title in 1970. Borbón and McGlothlin will be valuable additions to the “Big Red Machine” .
