May 25, 1924 - In a game at Washington which the Sox won 10 - 9, future Hall of Famer Ray "Cracker" Schalk caught his 1,500th career game.

May 25, 1952 - Sox pitchers Joe Dobson and Marv Grissom both fire complete game shutouts in beating the Tigers in a double header at Comiskey Park. The Sox win the games by the scores of 3 - 0 and 1 - 0.

May 25, 1957 - Sox pitcher Dick Donovan hurls a one hitter at Cleveland. Donovan allowed only a second inning double to former Sox infielder Eddie Robinson in winning 4 - 0.

May 25, 1973 - The beginning of the end for the season. In the second inning of a game with the Indians, Sox outfielder Ken Henderson tears up his knee in a collision at home plate trying to slide through Dave Duncan. This injury starts a run that saw the Sox use the disabled list 38 times. Making matters worse is that for some reason the Sox refused to allow Henderson to have it operated on until September meaning he was lost for the season.

That 1973 White Sox team looked great on paper, I remember that. There were some lofty expectations. Injuries do happen, but that season, the injuries were simply unbelievable.

:cool:
