1957 At Comiskey Park, an ugly brawl, precipitated by an Art Ditmar pitch behind Larry Doby's head, breaks out when the White Sox infielder takes exception to being the target of the bean ball and punches the Yankee hurler. Billy Martin, Walt Dropo, Bill Skowron, and Enos Slaughter all actively participate in the melee.
1966 After demanding more playing time, Jerry Adair is traded by the Orioles, along with minor leaguer John Riddle, to the White Sox for right-hander Eddie Fisher. The former Baltimore infielder will miss an opportunity to play in the World Series this season with the Birds, but will participate in the Fall Classic with Boston in 1967.
2010 In game against their cross-town rivals at Wrigley Field, the Cubs get out of a bases loaded jam in the final frame for a 1-0 victory over the White Sox. Juan Pierre's leadoff single in the top of the ninth spoils Ted Lilly's bid for a no-hitter, a feat that hasn't been accomplished at the 'Friendly Confines' since Milt Pappas threw a no-no in 1972.
