On WMAQ, Hal Totten, a Chicago Daily News play-by-play reporter, does a play-by-play radio report of the 12-1 Cubs' victory over the Cardinals. It will be the first broadcast of every Cub and White Sox home game of the season, marking the first time a team's games have been on the airwaves on a regular basis.
At Kansas City's Municipal Stadium, the White Sox tie a modern major league mark for most runs scored by a single team in a game as they drub the A's, 29-6. The Red Sox also scored 29 runs against the Browns in 1950.
White Sox utility player Steve Lyons plays all nine positions during an exhibition game against the Cubs at Wrigley Field. 'Psycho', however, will not join the small list of players, that includes Bert Campaneris (1965 A's) and Cesar Tovar (1968 Twins), who have accomplished the feat in a major league game.
