This Day in White Sox History: Faber's HoF career begins.
White Sox pitcher Urban "Red" Faber

June 1, 1914 - Talk about an impressive beginning to a baseball career. Future Sox Hall of Famer Red Faber started for the first time in the big leagues, on this day, in Detroit. He’d go 13 innings before losing 2-1.

June 1, 1937 - Sox pitcher Bill Dietrich hurled a no-hitter at the expense of the St. Louis Browns. He won the game, played in Comiskey Park, 8-0. The game took less than two hours to play. Dietrich got run support from both Mike Kreevich and Dixie Walker who each knocked in three runs on the afternoon.

June 1, 1985 - Carlton Fisk slammed his fifth home run in four games when he hit a two run shot off the Royals Bret Saberhagen in a game the Sox won 8-7. Fisk drove in 12 runs in that stretch and served notice that 1985 was going to be his best year in a Chicago uniform. He’d finish the year with 37 homers and 107 RBI’s both career highs.
