Fritz Peterson played for the New York Yankees, Cleveland Indians, and Texas Rangers from 1966 to 1976. Peterson was a southpaw starting pitcher who enjoyed his best success in 1970 with the Yankees when he went 20-11 and pitched in the All-Star game. He is widely known for trading families with teammate Mike Kekich in the early 1970s. He had a career record of 133-131. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are in development on a movie based on Peterson and Kekich, and own the rights to "The Trade," based on a book by Allen.
