July 15, 1963 - Sox pitcher Gary Peters, on his way towards being named Co-Rookie Of The Year, throws a one hitter in beating the Orioles 4 - 0. Future Hall Of Fame pitcher Robin Roberts gets the start for Baltimore and gets that team’s only hit. J.C. Martin and Tommy McCraw blast two run home runs for the Sox. Peters would strike out thirteen. This was the first big league game I ever saw in person...some start eh? (Gary talks specifically about this game and the stuff he had that night in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)

July 15, 1994 - ‘Batgate’ comes to Comiskey Park. Indians slugger Albert Belle was caught using a corked bat by Sox manager Gene Lamont and was ejected from the game. In order to keep Belle from being suspended further, teammate Jason Grimsley crawls through the air ducts and drops into the umpires room where the bat is being held for examination. Grimsley replaces Belle’s bat with a Paul Sorrento model which tips off everyone of the switch. Belle winds up getting suspended for ten games.

July 15, 2003 - Sox starter Esteban Loaiza starts the All Star Game being hosted by the White Sox for the fourth time in franchise history. He goes two scoreless innings and gets no decision in the A.L.’s 7 - 6 come from behind win. He’s joined in the game by teammates Carl Everett and Magglio Ordonez.

Wasn't that the game Hank Blalock took Eric Gagne deep when Gagne was in the midst of that incredible save-streak?

:D:Don't forget that great summer of 1977 with the South Side Hitman winning at a packed Comiskey Park over the Boston Red Sox. Final score of 9 to 7.
Wilbur Wood gets his 4th victory of the season and Larrin LaGrow gets his 15th save!!!

Bobby:

Did you move from the Pacific Northwest?

If so let me know your new contact info...

And I try to stay away from 'run of the mill' things... by that I mean the day to day game results. If I wanted to I could come up with at least twenty or thirty things every day.

But then the really special, unique, bizarre, strange, magical events would get lost in the torrent of items.

So I limit my listings.

You of course are free to add whatever you wish.

Oh I think I just got your meaning....the tape from that game I sent you...of course!
