The often tumultuous tenure of Dave Winfield on the New York Yankees coms to an end as he is traded to the California Angels for Mike Witt. Winfield signed an unprecedented ten-year contract to play for the Yankees following the 1980 season. George Steinbrenner was often critical of his play and hired gamblers to dig up dirt. This would lead to George getting a temporary ban from baseball.
