1910 Issuing just one walk, which spoils his bid for a perfect game, A's right-hander Chief Bender, who is part Chippewa, throws a 4-0 no-hitter at Shibe Park against the Cleveland Naps. The home plate umpire is Bill Dinneen, who tossed a no-hit game against the White Sox playing with the Pilgrims (Red Sox) in 1905, making him the only person in big-league history to both throw a no-hitter and call one as an umpire.
1915 White Sox hurler Red Faber hurls only 67 pitches in his complete-game 4-1 victory over the Senators. The future Hall of Fame right-hander keeps his pitch count by needing to throw just three pitches to retire the side in both the third and fifth innings.
1948 On WBZ-TV, the first Red Sox game ever televised from Fenway becomes must-see TV when Boston scores three times in the bottom of the tenth inning for a 6-5 walk-off victory. After the White Sox had tallied two runs in the top of the frame to break the 3-3 deadlock, Bobby Doerr's three-run home run dramatically ends the contest.
1997 In a Jet magazine article, Frank Thomas, "hurt" and "embarrassed" by the portions of his ESPN interview that ABC's "Nightline" used in their segment about Jackie Robinson, says the piece misrepresented his remarks. The network shows the White Sox All-Star sharing he rarely thinks about Robinson's efforts in breaking down baseball's color barrier.
