On November 7, 1973 — The Cubs trade second baseman Glenn Beckert and minor league prospect Bobby Fenwick to the Padres for outfielder Jerry Morales. The deal will prove to be beneficial to Chicago when their new fly chaser spends four productive years in his first tenure with the club, including an All-Star selection in 1977, and their former infielder playing in only 73 games before being released by San Diego during the first month of the 1975 season.
