August 3, 1956 - The White Sox set the franchise record by scoring eleven runs in the 1st inning of a game in Chicago against the Orioles. Billy Pierce gets the win as the Sox cruise 13 - 3.

August 3, 1986- Sox rookie Russ Morman collects three hits in his first three at bats in the big leagues. Morman also ties the record set by Billy Martin by getting two of them in the same inning in his debut game. That happens in the 6th inning of a 10 - 1 win at Comiskey Park against Detroit.

August 3, 1989 - Sox G.M. Larry Himes is best remembered for his drafting of future stars like Robin Ventura, Frank Thomas, Jack McDowell and Alex Fernandez but hed pull off a good trade or two as well. Case in point, this day. Himes shipped outfielder Mark Davis to the Angels for pitcher Roberto Hernandez. Hernandez would go on to save 134 games for the Sox with three seasons of thirty or more.

August 3, 1997 - Sox All Star second baseman, Nellie Fox finally enters the Baseball Hall Of Fame. Fox, the 1959 American League M.V.P. was voted in by the veterans committee after missing regular election to the Hall by the fewest votes in the history of the shrine. Technically he received the 75% per cent needed by rounding out his original vote total but the Hall had no provisos for that, so his total of 74.6% per cent stood and was deemed 'short' of the 75% per cent needed. Fortunately he was finally admitted.

August 3, 2001 - Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle has thrown a lot of big games both in the regular season and in the playoffs. This was one of his better ones as he beats Tampa Bay 4 - 0 at Comiskey Park. Buehrle allows only one hit, to Damian Rolls leading off the 7th inning. Buehrle is one of eight White Sox pitchers to have thrown both a no hitter and a one hitter.
