June 22, 1922 - Catcher and future Hall of Famer, Ray Schalk becomes the first White Sox player to hit for the cycle when he does it against the Tigers. The Sox would win 9 - 5.

June 22, 1938- Sox outfielder Hank Steinbacher becomes the second player in franchise history to rap out six hits in a game. Steinbacher goes 6 for 6 with two RBI’s and three runs scored in the Sox 16 - 3 win over the Senators at Comiskey Park.

June 22, 1958 - Ed Walsh Day is celebrated at Comiskey Park. The Sox honor their Hall of Fame pitcher who recorded 195 wins with a ceremony. "Red" Faber and Ted Lyons were among those attending. Less then a year later, the man who won 40 games in 1908 was dead.

June 22, 1983 - Noted team prankster, starting pitcher Jerry Koosman somehow "discovers" Gaylord Perry’s false teeth on the mound at Comiskey Park during a game against the Mariners. He offers to return them but Perry declines. Oh by the way, the Sox won the game 6-3. (Koosman talks about this entire episode in his interview with White Sox Interactive.com)

June 22, 1993 - On "Carlton Fisk Night", Fisk sets the major league record for games caught at 2,226. He breaks the old record held by Bob Boone. Teammates surround Fisk on the field for pre game ceremonies and present him with a motorcycle that they chipped in and bought him. The cycle is driven to home plate by Bo Jackson. The Sox would beat the Rangers 3-2 on a game winning single in the 9th inning by Lance Johnson. (Sox relief pitcher Donn Pall talks about his memories of that night...which stretched into the wee hours of the morning in his White Sox Interactive interview.)

I was at Carlton Fisk night. I thought Bo riding the motorcycle was just awesome. Of course, when you are 16, you think alot of things are awesome... It was still pretty cool, though. That would also be the last game I would attend until 1999 thanks to the strike. However, I had to attend since it was my friend's wedding party. I was more interested in the patio party, which was down right awesome. It wasn't until 2000 before I ended my boycott for good.

It sure didn't hurt. I did pay somewhat attention to the 1999 team. It was a combination of watching young players and getting tired of hearing about the Cubs. This was despite the fact the Sox had a better record than the Cubs most of the season... I had no idea the White Sox were in the Wild Card race in 1996 until I saw it on the internet a few years ago...
