This Day in White Sox History - Buehrle gets tossed.

August 1, 1983 - On a nationally televised ABC Monday Night Baseball game, White Sox hitter Greg Luzinski drove a Ray Fontenot pitch over the left field roof at Comiskey Park. It was the 'Bull's second roof shot in 1983 and the first home run ever allowed by Fontenot. The Sox would win the game 4-1 over the New York Yankees.

August 1, 2003 - The Sox won their 8,000 game in franchise history as they buried the Mariners in Seattle 12-1.

August 1, 2005 - Pitcher Mark Buehrle’s streak of 49 straight starts with six or more innings pitched ends when he is thrown out of a game in Baltimore by umpire Brian Gorman. Sox TV announcer Ken “Hawk” Harrelson became extremely upset in the TV booth“you’ve GOT to be kidding me!” Buehrle got tossed without warning for hitting Baltimore Oriole B.J. Surhoff after White Sox hitters were struck earlier in the game. The Sox would get the last laugh however winning the game and sweeping the four game series.
