Two Epic Games Played at Comiskey Park

Comiskey Park

 

HISTORY

Anson's National leaguers has been known as the White Stockings and when Charles A. Comiskey brought his St. Paul team into the city of his birth in 1900, Carl Green of Detroit and Irving E. (Si) Sanborn, covering baseball in the Windy City, revived the name White Stockings, possibly on suggestions by the Old Roman and his then warm friend, Ban Johnson.

THE GAMES

April 16, 1940

Indians start Bob Feller throws a no-hitter on Opening Day in Chicago against the White Sox.

May 8-9, 1984

A home run by the White Sox' Harold Baines mercifully puts an end to a 25-inning contest between Chicago and the Brewers. The score was 3-3 in the 21st inning when Milwaukee's Ben Oglivie hit a three-run homer, but Chicago then tied the score. Although the game was suspended after 17 innings and completed the next day, Baines's blast ended eight hours and six minutes of playing time in Chicago's 7-6 win.
