October 18, 1969 - A little known studio musical group comes out with an oddly named song. On this date it broke into the Billboard chart and would eventually move all the way to #1. The group was called Steam. The song, "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye..." Thanks to the efforts of Sox organist Nancy Faust it would become the song fans used to ‘serenade’ pitchers being removed from games. It’s used practically at every stadium today but it started on the South Side!

Let's see, there are several traditions the White Sox started: names on the back of uniforms, fireworks after homeruns, and the "curtain call" (though variations of that may have happened in other ballparks prior to 1977).
