1942 The White Sox and Cubs issue a 150-word joint statement that definitely eliminates the possibility of the Northside team from renting Comiskey Park as a venue for National League night games next season. The Chicago rivals agree it is in the best interest of the city to retain the north-south boundary which clearly demarcates the fans' loyalty to the two Windy City clubs.
1981 Arbitrator Raymond Goetz officially declares Carlton Fisk a free agent, citing the Boston Red Sox had violated the CBA by not mailing the catcher's contract by the December 20th deadline as specified in the agreement.
