Bob Shirley from the Chronology
May 31, 1982 - The Phils outbrawl the Reds to win 5-4 in 13 innings. Mario Soto holds the Phils to one hit while hitting two himself-Bob Dernier and Mike Schmidt-on successive pitches in the 6th. In the 7th Ron Reed plunks Soto who starts for the mound with his bat. He is restrained but Dave Concepcion steps in landing punches to Reed. All three are tossed and Reds reliever Joe Price allows no hits in the 7th and 8th but is pounded for 4 runs in the 9th. The Phils plate a run off Bob Shirley in the 13th to win.
Apr 1, 1982 - Surely you jest. The Cards trade P Bob Shirley to the Reds for minor league pitchers Jose Brito and Jeff Lahti. Brito won't make it but Lahti will have more than a cup of latte going 17-11 in 5 years. After a season in Cincy Bob Shirley will go to the Yankees.
