Default This Date In Sox History 5-29

May 29, 1956 - The Sox purchase pitcher Gerry Staley from the Yankees. Staley would become one of the top relief pitchers in the league by 1959. In 1960 hed make the All Star team.

May 29, 1982 - LaMarr Hoyt is beaten by the Indians 5 - 2 at Cleveland. Hoyt had won his first nine decisions of the season and coupled with five straight wins from 1981, meant he had won 14 consecutive decisions. It was longest win streak over multiple seasons in franchise history. Hoyt hadnt lost a game since August 15, 1981 at (where else?) Baltimore.

May 29, 1999 - Sox infielder Greg Norton hits two home runs in a game for the second consecutive game. Hes the first Sox player to pull that off since
Zeke Bonura did it in 1935.

Norton won player of the week honors for this week in 1999 with five homers total (only know that because it was on the scoreboard yesterday when he came up for the DRays).

Good stuff Lip, I was just wondering why you post these a day ahead of time?

It always makes me think I'm going crazy or something.

Just in case any of the mainstream media is reading (and they often do) posting them 24 hours ahead of time gives them a window should they choose to do a story or try to get some quotes from someone about a historical event.

Although Zeke originated it, they could both be legitimately called BananaNose
