June 2, 1967 - The Sox trade infielder Jerry Adair to Boston for two players, one of whom is pitcher Don McMahon. McMahon would be spectacular out of the bullpen going 5 - 0 with an ERA of 1.67 in 51 games for the "Near Miss" White Sox.

June 2, 1995 - With the Sox having blown four straight games to the Indians, and off to an 11 - 20 start, manager Gene Lamont is fired and replaced by abrasive, taciturn 3rd base coach Terry Bevington. Bevington would turn out to be a disaster on the field and in the clubhouse and the long term effects of the way Lamont was dismissed would cause his mentor and former Sox coach Jim Leyland to turn down overtures by owner Jerry Reinsdorf to take over after Bevington was removed.
