I know the Ruskies are tough, but this is ridiculous!: Coach is fired during the second intermission of a game .. team rebounds to win.

One of these days, I'd like to see baseball teams trade players between games of a doubleheader.

What was his record at the time? Seems like that should have been included in the article, doesn't it?

racde - Jose Cardenal was traded (technically sold) from the Phillies to the Mets in the middle iof a twi-night doubleheader between the two teams on August 2, 1979. He played for the Cardinals in the first game; he dressed as a Met for the second game but did not get into the game.

I don't believe this was the first time this ever happened, but it's not a frequent occurrence. The player traded for himself is a different weird thing that happens more often.
