June 19, 1926 - The Sox celebrate Eddie Collins Day at Comiskey Park. Collins would be admitted into the Hall of Fame and was one of the finest second baseman in MLB history.

June 19, 1977 - Wilbur Wood throws his last good game for the Sox as he beat the Aís 2-1 in the first game of a double header. But everyone looks towards first baseman Lamar Johnson who does everything in this contest. Johnsonís three hits (and two home runs) are the only Sox hits on the day. Oh yes, he also sang the National Anthem beforehand.
