» December 17, 1942: The Yankees trade OF Roy Cullenbine and C Buddy Rosar to the Indians for Roy Weatherly and IF Oscar Grimes. With the draft in mind, all four players are married with one child each. As noted by historian Lyle Spatz, Rosar had been in the doghouse with Joe McCarthy for leaving the team without permission the weekend of July 18-19 to take a police examination in Buffalo. The leave-taking prompted the Yankees to sign vet C Rollie Hemsley.
» May 20, 1947: Athletics C Buddy Rosar drops a pop-up off Walt Judnich's bat for his first error in 147 games and 756 chances. Yogi Berra will extend the record to 148 and 950 in 1957-59, but Rosar's 1946 single-season record of 115 games and 605 errorless chances will not be surpassed until 1997, by the Marlins' (National League) Charles Johnson. The Browns win, 11–1, behind Red Muncrief.
