Bret Boone Trades and Transactions

The Bret Boone trades and transactions seen below include all known instances where Bret Boone has been involved in a trade or transaction of any type as it relates to baseball.

"On the last day of the 1998 season, the Reds helped Bret Boone make baseball trivia history by starting the only infield ever composed of two sets of brothers ( Box Score ): first baseman Stephen Larkin , second baseman Bret Boone, future Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin , and their baseman Aaron Boone . During a 1991 interview, Ray Boone said: 'Bret came out of the womb hitting. He lived with us when Bob was doing his six months military service. Bret was barely two years old, but ever day I'd be out there in the backyard throwing Wiffle balls him. Bret crushed so many balls over the house that I called [former manager] Dave Garcia and told him to come watch the kid. Dave took one look at his swing and offered to sign him.'" - Author Hal Brodley in How Baseball Explains America (Triumph Books, 05/01/2015, Page 85)
