August 8, 1914 - The Sox purchase the contract of outfielder Oscar "Happy" Felsch from Milwaukee for 19,000 dollars. Felsch an outstanding glove man and hitter would become part of history by his participation in the 1919 ‘Black Sox’ scandal.

August 8, 1994 - With time running out for labor peace, Sports Illustrated puts Frank Thomas on the cover along with Ken Griffey Jr. The caption reads, "Top Guns. Frank Thomas And Ken Griffey Jr. Two Powerful Reasons To Keep Playing Ball." Their plea would fall on deaf ears as the following week, baseball shut down ending the season.

Read Ken Berry's interview here at WSI. He was the technical advisor on the movie and had some things to say about Sheen's and Cusack's ability to play.
