Timeline
   

Luke Appling turned in one of the greatest performances in White Sox history, capturing the American League batting title with a robust .388 batting average. Appling also enjoyed a club-record 27-game hitting streak, which ended on this date. "Old Aches and Pains," as he was known, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1964.
1927  - The newly-expanded Comiskey Park debuted on April 20 with the White Sox losing to Cleveland, 5-4. The new outfield upper deck accommodated 23,200 additional fans.
1933  - The first All-Star Game was played in Chicago on July 6, 1933, as part of the World Fair. The American League won in dramatic fashion, 4-2, on a three-run home run by the legendary Babe Ruth. more >
1939  - The first night game took place at Comiskey Park on August 14 before a crowd of 30,000 fans. The White Sox defeated the Browns by a score of 5-2.
1948  - Pat Seerey was a one-man wrecking crew for one game on July 18 at Philadelphia's Shibe Park. The portly left fielder became the only White Sox player to hit four home runs in a game, a 12-11, 11-inning Chicago victory. Seerey dented the roof twice, cleared it once and punctuated the day with a game-winning blast in the 11th inning.
1950  - The All-Star Game was held again at Comiskey Park on July 11, and the National League won in dramatic fashion, 4-3, on a Red Schoendienst home run in the 14th inning. The NL had tied the game in the ninth inning on Ralph Kinerís home run. Ted Williams sustained a broken elbow running into the outfield wall in the first inning, and ended up missing two months of the season.
