August 19, 1930 - The White Sox send 20,000 dollars along with outfielder Doug Taitt to the Cubs in return for minor league shortstop Luke Appling. The deal was engineered by the front office’s Milt Stock who was future Sox manager Eddie Stanky’s father in law. Appling would go on to have a Hall of Fame career on the South Side.

August 19, 1970 - The White Sox set the franchise record for the most runs scored in the 9th inning of a game, when they send home eleven guys in Boston. Earlier in the year the Sox scored 22 runs at Fenway Park and on this day the eleven runs turned a loss into a 13 - 5 win for Wilbur Wood. The eleven runs were scored without the benefit of a single home run as sixteen men batted.

That is something I never knew; that Luke was property of the Cubs.
