Zero Percent Commission

With the passing of the trading deadline a few days ago the opportunity to recall the most bizarre trade in baseball history expired for another season.

In 1973 New York Yankee pitchers Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich initiated their own trade thereby avoiding any commissions to their respective agents. Mssrs. Peterson and Kekich swapped wives. Children and animals were presumably renamed later.
