July 14, 1915 - In a 6 - 4 win over the Athletics at Comiskey Park, pitcher Urban "Red" Faber steals second, third and home in the contest. Heís one of only three Sox players to ever do this and the only pitcher to pull it off.

July 14, 1953 - Sox pitcher Billy Pierce, perhaps the greatest lefty in franchise history, starts the All Star Game in Cincinnatiís Crosley Field. Billy throws three innings allowing only one hit. He gets no decision in the N.L.ís 5 - 1 win.

July 14, 1979 - Itís hard to believe given his reputation for sleepwalking and indifference but Sox outfielder Claudell Washington actually had a good game for the club. Washington hit three home runs against the Tigers in the Sox 12 - 4 win. He went 3 for 5 with five RBIís.

July 14, 1991- It was Ďalmostí a no-hitter with an unusual twist. Sox starter Jack McDowell opened the game at Milwaukee by allowing a lead off home run by Paul Molitor. It would be the only hit on the day for the Brewers as Jack recorded the next 27 outs without allowing a hit. McDowell allowed only one walk and a base runner via error the rest of the afternoon in the Sox 15 - 1 laugher.

July 14, 2000 - Frank Thomas breaks Luke Applingís team record for most RBIís when he drives in his 1,117th. It came at home in a 9 - 4 loss to the Cardinals. This was also the same game where Cal Eldred left in the 5th inning with soreness in his forearm / elbow. In the midst of a tremendous first half of the season with seemingly all the pieces in place for a run to a championship, Eldredís injury coupled with the loss for a long period of time, of starter James Baldwin, forced the Sox remaining pitchers into a heavier work load which caused a rash of bad arms. Two pitchers, Mike Sirotka and Jim Parque saw their careers ended by arm injuries suffered later in 2000.

I believe Robin Ventura's birthday is today (7-14-67 IIRC--I know, easy enough to look up but I can't right now). If so that makes it a historic day for the Sox!

2000, the year I learned we all had Labrums and yes they can be torn. BTW, I think every baseball card in existence is being sold on eBay....
