September 7, 1960 - In a game at Comiskey Park infielder Sammy Esposito booted a cinch double play ball hit by future Sox infielder Bill “Moose” Skowron, with the Sox leading in the eighth inning, 4-2. That lead quickly evaporated as the Yankees rallied for four runs and a 6-4 win.

September 7, 1960 was the latest date in any year that the official temperature for Chicago reached 100 degrees.
Perhaps Sammy was feeling drained by the heat.
