Today in White Sox History: March 4

Two future Hall-of-Famers, all in one day!

Bermingham Barons - Chicago White Sox


In the wake of the “Black Sox,” owner Charles Comiskey attempted to rebuild his team. One of the first moves he made was to purchase future Hall-of-Famer Harry Hooper from the Red Sox for two players. Hooper would play five years on the South Side, and hit better than .300 in three of them.


Basketball superstar Michael Jordan, who retired in October 1993 from the Chicago Bulls, made his spring training debut in a White Sox uniform. He played in his first game at the major league level against the Rangers in Sarasota, Fla.

He’d collect his first spring training hit on March 10, against Cleveland in Winter Haven.
