February 18, 1974: Two weeks after the kidnapping of Patty Hearst, the Reds trade Denis Menke to the Astros for Pat Darcy.

All “Reds trivia” posts come from Greg Rhodes and John Snyder’s fabulous book, “Redleg Journal” (see link for purchasing) and are used with Greg’s permission.

Thanks again to Greg Rhodes for permission to use his material.
