» July 11, 1945:
Aaron Robinson, Yankees C, returns from the military. Red Ruffing is back too, and so are Hugh Mulcahy and Buddy Lewis. Charlie Keller will follow, and a couple of dozen former major-league players will be in uniform before the season is over.
» February 24, 1948: In a key trade for New York, Ed Lopat goes to the Yankees from the White Sox in exchange for C Aaron Robinson, Bill Wight, and Fred Bradley. Lopat will star for seven seasons in pinstripes, winning 21 in 1951 and going 16–4 in 1953. Robinson's main value to the Sox will come at the end of the season when he's swapped for another lefty pitcher, Billy Pierce.
» August 21, 1948: After shutting out the White Sox for eight innings, Bob Lemon weakens and Chicago scores three runs to beat the Indians 3–2. Pat Seerey walks and Aaron Robinson and Dave Philley hit homers for Chicago. The runs break the 47-inning scoreless streak by Indians pitchers that started with the last three innings of the first game on August 15. The 1903 Cleveland team had had a run of 41 scoreless innings and Baltimore will extend the record in 1974 to 54 innings.
» November 10, 1948: In a move that will give Chicago their mound ace
for the 1950s, Detroit sends young Billy Pierce (3-0 in 1948) to the White Sox for Aaron Robinson.
The Tigers even sweeten the deal with $10,000.
» September 24, 1950: Mental lapses crush Tiger hopes. Due to heavy smoke from a Canadian forest fire, Detroit puts on the lights in a Sunday afternoon contest with the Indians. Cleveland's only score in nine innings is pitcher Bob Lemon's HR in the fourth, as the match is tied 1–1 on Johnny Lipon's HR. Lemon opens the 10th with a triple, and two intentional walks follow. With the bases loaded and one out, C Aaron Robinson thinks he has a shot at a DP by just stepping on home. Because of the haze, he did not see 1B Don Kolloway remove the force after fielding the ball hit by slugger Luke Easter, and the Indians win 2–1.
