December 10, 1988 – After winning the Cy Young Award and MVPs of the NLCS and World Series, pitcher Orel Hershiser and the Dodgers discuss the outline of a multi-year contract.

The two sides eventually settle in March 1989 on a three-year, $7.9 million contract, which is the largest three-year deal in history.
