This day in baseball: Schilling goes to Arizona

On July 26, 2000, the Philadelphia Phillies traded right-handed pitcher Curt Schilling to the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for first baseman Travis Lee and pitchers Omar Daal, Vicente Padilla, and Nelson Figueroa.  With Arizona in 2001, Schilling went 22–6 with a 2.98 ERA in 2001, leading the majors in wins and innings pitched.  He played a major role in the playoffs, going 4–0 with a 1.12 ERA.  The Diamondbacks went on to defeat the Yankees in seven games in the 2001 World Series.
