Busy Day (but wait till you see the 29th!)

September 28, 1932 - J. Louis Comiskey, the new owner and son of Charles Comiskey tries to rebuild his franchise. He pays an unheard of sum (in those days) of $150,000 to the Philadelphia As for infielder Jimmy Dykes, outfielder Al Simmons and utility man George "Mule" Haas. Simmons would become a member of the Hall Of Fame in 1953.

September 28, 1953 - The Sox beat the St. Louis Browns 3 - 2 behind Billy Pierce. Its the last American League game ever played in St. Louis since the Browns would be moved to Baltimore.

September 28, 1997 - Frank Thomas wins the batting championship with a .347 average. He joins Luke Appling as the only Sox players to do this. Thomas is one of only fourteen players in MLB history with a batting title and at least 450 home runs to their credit. Thomas is also the largest player (both in height and weight) to win a batting crown.

September 28, 2003 - Sox starter Esteban Loaiza record his 21st win of the season, beating the Royals 5 - 1. The 21 wins tied the MLB record for the most wins in a season by a pitcher born in Mexico. Loaiza tied the mark set by Fernando Valenzuela in 1986.
