June 25, 1910 - Future Hall of Famer Cy Young, the winningest pitcher in the history of MLB, loses his final decision to the White Sox. Young was beaten by the Sox 4 - 0 on this day.

June 25, 1953 - Sox manager Paul Richards was regarded as one of the smartest guys ever to lead a team in baseball history. Here’s what I mean...with the Sox going for a series sweep of New York and leading 4-2 in the 9th, Richards brings in pitcher Harry Dorish to relieve Billy Pierce. Only Richards doesn’t remove Pierce from the game! He moves him to first base! After Dorish retires his two men, Pierce is brought back to the mound to end the game.

June 25, 1991 - Sox pitcher "Black" Jack McDowell fires the first shutout for the home team in the new Comiskey Park when he blanks the Mariners 4 - 0. Jack was masterful on the day and carried a no hitter into the 8th inning.

I still have no idea why managers don't platoon a pitcher to 1st base or the outfield. Especially righty/lefty obsessed managers like Ozzie.

What are the drawbacks to this strategy that it is basically never used anymore?

The obvious drawback is you lose your starting first baseman.

If the pitcher is moved to another position (in an AL park), you lose the DH
