August 22, 1923 - In a game at Comiskey Park, Sox pitcher Hollis ‘Sloppy’ Thurston strikes out the side on only nine pitches versus the Philadelphia Athletics.

August 22, 1980 - Sox owner Bill Veeck agrees to sell the team to Edward DeBartolo, a millionaire who invented the modern day shopping mall. DeBartolo though was voted down by the other owners due to speculation about his association with mobsters. The way was then opened for Jerry Reinsdorf and Eddie Einhorn to purchase the team. The Sox were actually an ‘afterthought’ for the two men. Einhorn was part of a group trying to buy the San Diego Padres and Reinsdorf was part of a group attempting to own the New York Mets.

Probably not because we've never had a pitcher named "Vazcuez."
