Nov 17, 1933 - Pittsburgh sends Alan Comorosky and Tony Piet to Cincinnati in exchange for P Red Lucas and Wally Roettger.

Apr 10, 1930 - The Cardinals send journeyman outfielder Wally Roettger to the Giants for reserve infielder Doc Farrell. The Giants also throw in Showboat Fisher‚ an outfielder who last played for the Senators. Showboat will reward the Cardinals by posting a .374 average for the year.
