August 8th- An Interesting Anniversary for Chicago Baseball

August 8, 1976- In the first game of a double-header, the Chicago White Sox donned some pretty unique uniforms: shorts! It looks like the Sox only wore these great unis for three games.

8-8-88: It's also anniversary-well sort of- on the other side of town. The first night game (yes, youngsters until 1988, there were no lights and ergo no night games at Wrigley!) was scheduled for August 8, 1988. Unfortunately, Mother Nature rained the game out after 3 plus innings, so the first official night game at Wrigley was August 9th, 1988.
