On March 17, 1969, Orlando Cepeda was traded from the St. Louis Cardinals to the Atlanta Braves for Joe Torre.

In retrospect, this trade was significant for two reasons. First, both Cepeda and Torre won MVP awards as Cardinals - Cepeda in 1967, two years before the trade, and Torre in 1971, two years after the trade. Second, both Cepeda and Torre are now in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Torre is technically in the Hall of Fame because of his managing, but his playing career was very impressive. So impressive, for example, that he is in the Baseball Think Factory Hall of Merit. Orlando Cepeda is not, in fact, in the Hall of Merit.

The next table compares the career records of Orlando Cepeda and Joe Torre, as measured by Player won-lost records.

All articles are written so that they pull data directly from the most recent version of the Player won-lost database. Hence, any numbers cited within these articles should automatically incorporate the most recent update to Player won-lost records. In some cases, however, the accompanying text may have been written based on previous versions of Player won-lost records. I apologize if this results in non-sensical text in any cases.
