This Day in White Sox History - 07/19
Future White Sox Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio in 1960. (http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/)

July 19, 1946 - In a strange game at Boston, umpire “Red” Jones ejected 12 Chicago White Sox players and two coaches after someone in the dugout yelled out,“hey, meathead, what kind of call is that?” Naturally Boston would go on to win the game 9-2.

July 19, 1960 - In a game at Comiskey Park, Luis Aparicio got an inside the park home run in the fourth inning off Boston’s Frank Sullivan. The play drove in three runs. It was Aparicio’s fifth inside the park home run in four years (1956-1960). He is the all time team leader in this obscure category. The Sox won the game 6-0.

July 19, 1970 - Luis Aparicio Day is staged at Comiskey Park. The future Hall Of Famer is praised for his many years of service in a pre game ceremony. With the Sox in the middle of the worst season in franchise history, only 18,587 show up on a rainy day for the double header with Baltimore. Aparicio would go 4 for 9 on the day as the Sox split the twin bill.
