Yep, John Vuckovich was the Reds starting 3B on Opening Day, April 7, 1975.

On August 5, 1975, he was traded by the Reds to the Phils for Dave Schneck, who never played MLB for the Reds, but in turn was traded in 1977 to the Cubs, for Champ Summers.

RIP, Vuk.

Rest In Peace.

This is the first thing I thought of when I read this.

A class act. A very unfair disease.
