White Sox minority owners, headed up by William Bartholomay (who later led the group that would buy the Braves and move them to Atlanta), sold their 46% shares of the team to majority owner Art Allyn. It was the first time since 1939 the team was owned by a single individual.
White Sox pitcher Gary Peters became the last pitcher to hit a grand slam for the franchise, as he connected in the fourth inning of a 5-1 win over the Yankees at Comiskey Park. In addition, he threw a complete game with nine strikeouts in the win. Peters would hit 15 home runs as a member of the Sox.
Something to shoot for, Dylan Cease.
