1925 With the Yankees trailing by three runs in the bottom of the tenth inning, Babe Ruth hits a Sarge Connally pitch for a game-winning home run, which beats the White Sox, 6-5. The 'Sultan of Swat' becomes the first modern player to blast a walk-off grand slam to win the game by one run.
1942 In the final game of his twentieth and last full season, Ted Lyons beats the Indians, going the distance in the White Sox' 3-1 victory at Cleveland's League Park. The 41 year-old 'Sunday Teddy,' although exempt from the draft due to his age, enlists in the U.S. Marine Corps after the season and fights in the Pacific during WW II, completes all of his twenty games, 13 of which he started on a Sunday, posting a 14-6 record along with an ERA of 2.10.
