August 31, 1926 - In a twin bill at Detroit, Sox infielder Ray Morehart cranked out 9 hits in 10 at bats! Morehart went 5 for 6 in the opening game, then capped it off with a 4 for 4 performance in the nightcap. The Sox would gain a split on the day.

August 31, 1935 - It’s the highlight of his career. Sox pitcher Vern Kennedy throws a no hitter against the Indians. It takes place in Comiskey Park. The Sox win it 5 - 0. The no hitter is saved in the 9th inning when outfielder Al Simmons makes a diving catch on a ball.

August 31, 1964 - Sox catcher Gerry McNertney is part of the cover shot for Sports Illustrated. It is one of the few rare black & white covers ever done by the magazine. The caption reads, "Orioles vs. White Sox." The baserunner trying to score is Brooks Robinson.

August 31, 1993 - Outfielder Tim ‘Rock’ Raines becomes only the second Sox player to homer from both sides of the plate in the same game. It takes place at Yankee Stadium as he victimizes Sterling Hitchcock and Rich Monteleone.

Yes, that is a cool cover. Please forgive me – who is the other White Sox player to homer from both sides of the plate in the same game?

Check out the catcher wearing just the regular wool hat backwards- no helmet. The tools of ignorance have evolved quite a bit over the years, for the better.

Six times in franchise history has a player homered from both sides of the plate in the same game...Jose did it THREE of the six times.

The other players to have done it were Ken Henderson, Tim Raines and Brian Simmons.

The Royals were the victims of this three of the six times it took place.
