December 6 in Tigers and mlb history:

1939: In a trade of veteran shortstops - or "worn-out shortstops‚" as one newspaper describes it - the Cubs acquire Billy Rogell from the Detroit Tigers for Dick Bartell. Rogell‚ who injured his arm playing handball the previous year‚ will hit just .136 before hanging up his spikes. The Tigers will release "Rowdy Richard" 5 games into the 1941 season‚ but he will stick with the Giants until 1946.

1952: The American League approves a 2-league waiver rule curbing inter-league trading after June 15th.

1952: At the Winter Meetings a new bonus rule is approved‚ replacing the one that was instituted in 1946 and repealed in 1950. This new rule sets the bonus limit at $4‚000 or the player could be lost though the draft. This second bonus rule lasts until abolished in 1957.

1954: The Tigers trade 1B Walt Dropo with P Ted Gray and OF Bob Nieman to the White Sox for 1B Ferris Fain and Jack Phillips.

1956: The Detroit Tigers purchased Mel Clark from the Washington Senators.
1956: The Detroit Tigers traded Jim Robertson and Bobby Tiefenauer to Toronto (International) for Donald Griffin (minors) and Archie Wilson.

1958: The Senators give walking papers to 3B Eddie Yost‚ sending him to Detroit along with Rocky Bridges and OF Neil Chrisley. The Nats receive infielders Reno Bertoia and Ron Samford and OF Jim Delsing in exchange.
The "Walking Man" Yost will lead the AL in OBP and Walks for the next two seasons playing for Detroit.

1968: William Eckert resigns as commissioner.

1974: The Detroit Tigers sent Jim Ray to the Pittsburgh Pirates as part of a conditional deal.

1975: The Houston Astros traded Jim Crawford, Milt May and Dave Roberts to the Detroit Tigers for Terry Humphrey, Mark Lemongello, Gene Pentz and Leon Roberts.

1982: The Minnesota Twins drafted Paul Gibson from the Detroit Tigers in the 1982 rule 5 draft.

1989: The St. Louis Cardinals traded Matt Kinzer and Jim Lindeman to the Detroit Tigers for Pat Austin (minors), Marcos Betances (minors) and Bill Henderson (minors).

1990: Fifteen more players become "free look" free agents as part of the settlement of the most recent collusion case against the owners. It will also cost the clubs a whopping $280 million in damages.

2004: Baseball officials report that they are closer to an agreement on a drug-testing program that will incorporate more tests‚ and stiffer penalties. Donald Fehr says he expects the plan to be in place by spring training.

2005: The Detroit Tigers signed Tim Crabtree as a free agent.

2010: The Detroit Tigers signed Omir Santos as a free agent.

2012: The Detroit Tigers purchased Kyle Lobstein from the New York Mets.
2012: The Boston Red Sox traded Jeff Kobernus to the Detroit Tigers for Justin Henry (minors).

2015: The Detroit Tigers signed Mike Pelfrey as a free agent.

December 7 in Tigers and mlb history:

1887: The Arbitration Committee meets and grants reserve rights to minor league clubs for the first time. In the most prominent contract dispute‚ prospect Bug Holliday signs with minor league Des Moines‚ despite the claims by major league St. Louis.

1937: Five of baseball's pioneers are added to the Hall of Fame: Connie Mack‚ John McGraw‚ Morgan G. Bulkeley‚ Ban Johnson‚ and George Wright.

1937: The National League extends permission for night baseball but the American League refuses to permit arc light games.

1937: The Red Sox traded Dom Dallessandro, Al Niemiec and cash to acquire the contract of 19-year-old Ted Williams from San Diego (Pacific Coast League)‚ but he will not report to Boston until 1939.

1941: Robert Moses 'Lefty' Grove announces his retirement. A multi-time Pitching Triple Crown Winner and 300 game winner, Grove is considered one of the best pitchers of all time.

1960: Detroit trades 2B Frank Bolling and a player to be named later (OF Neil Chrisley) to Milwaukee for OF Bill Bruton‚ 2B Chuck Cottier‚ C Dick Brown‚ and P Terry Fox.
