On this date in Giants history…
1968: The Los Angeles Dodgers trade infielders Ron Hunt and Nate Oliver to the San Francisco Giants for catcher Tom Haller and pitcher Frank Kasheta. Haller will hit .285 as the Dodgers’ regular catcher this season. This is the first trade between the two franchises since 1956, when Jackie Robinson was sent to the Giants but retired instead. Hunt (pictured) led the league in hit by pitches for six straight seasons, when he was plunked a total of 176 times between 1968–’73.
