The start of a new month...

June 1, 1914 - Talk about an impressive start! Future Sox Hall Of Famer Urban "Red" Faber started for the first time in the big leagues, on this day in Detroit. Hed go thirteen innings before losing 2 - 1.

June 1, 1937 - Sox pitcher Bill Dietrich hurls a no hitter at the expense of the St. Louis Browns. He wins the game, played in Comiskey Park, 8 - 0.

June 1, 1985 - Carlton Fisk slams his 5th home run in four games when he hits a two run shot off the Royals Bret Saberhagen in a game the Sox win 8-7. Fisk drove in a dozen runs in that stretch and served notice that 1985 was going to be his best year in a Chicago uniform. Hed finish the year with 37 homers and 112 RBIs.

Those are amazing power numbers by a catcher, but didn't he also finish that year with a .237 batting average? And he was forty by that point too, right? Still, I'd take that kinda production out of my catcher any day (though I'd like the average to be higher!) :redneck
