May 28, 1922 - Continuing to rebuild in the wake of the ‘Black Sox’ scandal, owner Charles Comiskey spends 100,000 dollars and purchases the contract of third baseman Willie Kamm from San Francisco of the Pacific Coast League. Comiskey also throws in three players! Kamm would lead the A.L. in fielding percentage for six straight seasons, 1924 through 1929.

May 28, 1973 - A night Wilbur Wood will never forget. Two days earlier the game between Cleveland and the White Sox was suspended by curfew tied at two after 16 innings. Rain washed out action on the 27th so when the suspended game was resumed on the 28th, it was Wood’s turn to pitch. He went out and threw five innings before the Sox would win it 6 - 3 in 21 innings. Thirty minutes later Wood went out and started the regularly scheduled game. He would toss a complete game, four hitter, winning 4 - 0. Two wins in one evening! His line for the night, 14 innings pitched, one run, six hits, nine strikeouts, two wins. Wilbur was now 13 - 3 on the season and it wasn’t even June 1st! (Wilbur talks about the impressive evening’s work in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)

May 28, 1986 - In a game against the Rangers in Arlington, Texas, Sox pitcher Joe Cowley strikes out the first seven men he faces which sets an American League record. However, Cowley winds up pitching only four plus innings and takes the loss in the 6 - 3 defeat. (And no this is NOT the baseball writer for the Sun-Times!)

Willie Kamm circa 1929 Even though I'm one of the oldest members here, I'm too young to remember Willie Kamm. Still, he's one of my all time favorite Sox players. He was probably the best fielding third baseman of his generation. Thanks for posting this picture.

I won't forget Memorial Day 2005 with Timo's heroics in the bottom of the 9th against the Angels.

LipWillie Kamm tells a great story in "The Glory Of Their Times" about how he got heckled almost non-stop through an entire doubleheader by a hometown fan with a booming foghorn voice who was sitting right behind the third base dugout.
Funny stuff...
