October 25, 1955 - Sox co G.M.ís Chuck Comiskey and John Rigney make their first Sox trade: shortstop "Chico" Carrasquel and center fielder Jim Busby to Cleveland for slugging centerfielder Larry Doby, the lefthanded power hitter the Sox had been lacking the previous three years. The deal makes room for a rookie shortstop from Venezuela named Luis Aparicio.

October 25, 1993 - Sox manager Gene Lamont, who guided the team to its first postseason appearance in ten years was named American League Manager Of The Year. Lamont would beat out the Yankees Buck Showalter for the honor.

October 25, 2005 - Game #3 of the World Series sets the record for the longest game by duration in history. The 14 inning game goes 5:41 minutes and ends when another Sox role player Geoff Blum belts a home run giving the club the lead at 6 - 5. It would end 7 - 5 with Game #2 starter Mark Buehrle picking up the save.

At the time I felt the sox made a huge mistake trading Carrasquel. :redface:

I had a big German test the next day after Game Three, and I remember around the nineth the Astros were threatening and I turned the game off in disgust only to turn it on a couple of hours later to see that Geoff Blum was pinch hitting and then BOOM! I think I woke up all the dorm with my shouting.

I listened to the end of that game on the radio, while trying to sleep. Then after the White Sox won it, 7-5, I turned on the TV and caught all of the highlights, staying up well past 4:00 a.m. What a day, what a week, what a month, October of 2005 was. I would gladly go through it again.

Well, 10-25 in what, the 10th inning or so? I was in Atlanta, so for me in ET it was an hour later; but even in Chicago it must've been well past midnight.

I remember being on the phone with a friend and all we could say was to yell "Geoff Blum!" over and over again.
