August 29, 1965 - In a double header at Comiskey Park, Sox shortstop Ron Hansen sets the major league record when he handles 29 chances. Boston provides the opposition. The Sox win both games 3 - 2, with game one going 14 innings.

August 29, 1975 - Outfielder Ken Henderson becomes the first Sox player to hit a home run from both sides of the plate in the same game. Ross Grimsley and Wayne Garland are the victims at Baltimore in a game the Sox would win 4 - 2.
