May 14, 1963 - Sox pitcher Ray Herbert, a twenty game and All Star Game winner in 1962, fires his fourth consecutive shutout beating the Tigers 3 - 0 at Comiskey Park. Herbert allowed six hits and struck out seven. (Herbert talks at length about his years on the South Side in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)

May 14, 1967 - Sox pitching great Gary Peters authors his second career one hitter beating the Angels 3 - 1 at Comiskey Park. It was the second game in a double header sweep. Peters allowed a second inning home run from former Sox first baseman "Moose" Skowron and struck out ten. (Peters talks about his memories from this game with White Sox Interactive in his interview.)

May 14, 1977 - The Sox slaughter the Indians 18 - 2 in a game that started at 10:30 in the morning in connection with a promotion for McDonalds restaurants Egg McMuffin. Sox first baseman Jim Spencer would tie the franchise mark with eight RBIís on the day. Spencer went 3 - 3 with two home runs including a grand slam along with a two run shot and a two RBI single. (Eric Soderholm recounts his memories of this strange morning game in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)

May 14, 1998 - The Sox Greg Norton becomes one of only a handful of players to hit two home runs in the same game off Randy Johnson. Norton homered in the 3rd and 5th innings of the Sox 5 - 3 win at Comiskey Park.

May 14, 2005 - Sox speedster Scott Podsednik swipes four bases in a game against the Orioles at U.S. Cellular Field. Just a week earlier he grabbed four bases versus Toronto. Heís the only player in franchise history to steal four bases in a game twice.

Great memories. I really liked Spencer too. Sadly, I think he passed a couple of years ago. In retrospect, those uniforms were really great. That card of Pods cracks me up, as he makes the catch while back pedaling.
