    Billy Myers from the Chronology

    Dec 4, 1940 - The Cubs swap SS Bobby Mattick OF Jim Gleeson and a player to be announced to the Reds for SS Billy Myers. Myers will split his time between Chicago and the minors in '41 and quit in 1942 rather than take a pay cut.

    Oct 8, 1940 - With only one day's rest‚ Bobo Newsom comes back for the Tigers and nearly has enough to win. Detroit gets an unearned run off Paul Derringer in the 3rd‚ and Newsom holds the Reds scoreless through 6 innings. In the 7th‚ however‚ Frank McCormick and Jimmy Ripple hit consecutive doubles‚ and Ripple later ambles in from 3B on Billy Myers' sac ?y. Derringer gives up 7 hits in the first 6 innings but sets the Tigers down in order in the final 3 frames. Old Jimmy Wilson catches 6 of the 7 games‚ hits .353‚ and has the only SB of the Series. The Reds' share is $5‚803 and the Tigers get $3‚532.

    Sep 12, 1939 - Trailing 2-0 to the visiting Dodgers‚ the Reds score 2 runs in the 9th on a 2-out HR by Billy Myers off Hot Potato Hamlin. Frank McCormick's single in the 10th drives in the winning run.

    Aug 10, 1936 - It must be the name. Buddy Myer‚ last year's AL batting champ‚ is sent home by Washington to recover from a season-long stomach ailment. Last week‚ Billy Myers‚ Reds SS and captain‚ was operated on for a "telescoped bowel‚" and is expected to be out for the season.

    Dec 14, 1934 - The Giants purchase prospect Billy Myers‚ 25‚ and trade him to the Reds for vet Mark Koenig and Allyn Stout. Myers‚ who hit .313 at Columbus this year‚ will be the Reds starting shortstop for the next 6 seasons.
