July 23, 1968 - Sox relief pitcher Hoyt Wilhelm appears in both ends of a double header versus the Red Sox at Comiskey Park and in doing so sets the record for most appearances by a pitcher. He breaks Cy Young’s record of 905 games. "Old Tilt" would appear in a staggering 1,070 games before he retired.

July 23, 1986 - One of, if not the worst, deal made by Ken "Hawk" Harrelson as he sends Bobby Bonilla to the Pirates for pitcher Jose’ DeLeon. Bonilla, selected by the Sox in the major league draft in December 1985, showed flashed of brilliance in his half season on the South Side. He’d eventually turn into a complete, dominating type player although he was a pain in the rear end, attitude-wise.

At the time DeLeon had a live arm. He beat Clemens twice that year. And Clemens only had 4 losses the whole year. He had good enough stuff to be something but could develop anything to off-set his fastball. It was not a terrible trade at the time, but it turned out to be terrible.

Did anybody really have a clue, though, as to how good Bonilla would become? This is another Chris Young/Brian Anderson debate.

And quite frankly, in hindsight, if the Sox got Bonilla, their entire future would have changed, probably not having the chance to draft Robin or Big Frank.

South Side Hitmen bomb the Blue Jays 10-3 in Toronto. Jack Brohamer, Ralph Garr and Alan Bannister all clout HRs to back Ken Kravec's complete game 8-hitter. Jim Essian chipped in 2 sacrifice flies. Sox record: 56-36, 1st place (3 games ahead of KC).
