May 2, 1901 - The Sox are part of the first forfeit in American League history. Playing against Detroit, Sox players began stalling hoping to have the game end because of darkness. Umpire Tom Connolly had seen enough and forfeited the game to Detroit as Sox fans stormed the field in protest. Connolly had to be given a police escort to get out of the stadium.

May 2, 1984 - It was the finest regular season performance by LaMarr Hoyt as he one hit the Yankees winning 3 - 0 at Comiskey Park. The Cy Young Award winner lost his no hitter on a single by Don Mattingly with one out in the seventh inning.

One other notation about Hoyt's game...guess who started at 3rd base that evening and actually played five innings.

If you said Mike "Spanky" Squires, you are correct!

That's right a LEFT handed throwing 3rd baseman! First time since around 1936 or so that happened.

The Sox would end up acquiring two of those crappy Yankees hitters for the '85 season, Oscar Gamble and Roy Smalley Jr. Neither guy had an ounce of success with the Sox that year. And with ex-Sox bum Steve Kemp in their lineup, it's amazing more one-hitters weren't thrown against them in 1984 :D:
