July 19, 1946 - In a strange game at Boston, umpire "Red" Jones ejects 12 White Sox players and two coaches after some one in the dugout yells out, "hey, meathead, what kind of call is that?" Naturally Boston would go on to win the game 7 - 2.

July 19, 1960 - In a game at Comiskey Park, Luis Aparicio gets an inside the park home run in the 4th inning off Bostonís Frank Sullivan. The play drives in three runs. Itís Aparicioís fifth inside the park home run in four years (1956-1960). He is the all time team leader in this obscure category. The Sox win the game 6 - 0.

July 19, 1970 - Luis Aparicio Day is staged at Comiskey Park. The Hall Of Famer is praised for his many years of service in a ceremony. With the Sox in the middle of the worst season in franchise history, only 18,587 show up on a rainy day for the double header with Baltimore.

July 19 is also the 33rd anniversary of my first Sox game. Sox beat Milwaukee 7-3 at home as Bart Johnson got the win and Terry Forster picked up a three-inning(!!) save. Ken Henderson was 3-for-4 with three RBI and Ed Herrmann - one of my first Sox heroes - went 2-for-4 with an RBI.

I'd like to thank the good people at baseball almanac for the stats, since I was seven at the time and just remembered that the Sox won, beat Milwaukee and I got to see a game at Old Comiskey for the first time.

And that's how the love affair began...:D:
