April 27, 1930 - One of the most bizarre individual stats youll ever see and I have no idea how this happened. On this date in a 2 - 1 Sox win at St. Louis, first baseman John "Bud" Clancy recorded no putouts and no assists in the nine inning game. None, zero, nada, zip! His feat has been matched only one other time, by the As Gene Tenace.

April 27, 2000 - Jose Valentin produces the extremely rare "natural cycle" against the Orioles. He singles in the first, doubles in the second, triples in the third and homers in the eight inning. The Sox would win this one easily 13 - 4.

Am I remembering correctly that within the next few games, Valentin racked up a HR, double and triple and was up in the 9th only needing a single for another cycle? ....and then he never got his chance because Ray Durham got caught stealing to end the game?

I seem to remember some dumbass move like that from Durham (he was not the potential tying or winning run) to spoil someone's chance to hit for the cycle again...but maybe I'm wrong - 2000 is starting to feel like a long time ago.

As Jean Shepherd said, "In 1938, Zeke Bonura won the American League fielding championship at first base and never put a glove on the ball.":tongue:

How/when did Tenace do it?

I believe the Rangers' Toby Harrah played an entire double header in 1976 without a put out or assist.

Rail:

According to Rich Lindberg in his updated White Sox Encyclopedia the only two guys to do this are Clancy and Tenace.

I think Sox 3B Sid O'brien played the entire 1970 season without either:o:

But wasn't Harrah primarily a third baseman? I can understand a position player going through a game without having the ball hit to him is rare, but that's nowhere near as amazing as a first baseman not being involved in a play for an entire 9 innings.
