Today in White Sox History: September 23

One-Dogged: Johnson went three-bag crazy at — what new — the Metrodome.


Sept. 23, 1995Lance Johnson got six hits in six at-bats in a game at the Minnesota Twins. Three of Johnson’s hits were triples, and he drove in four runs in the 14-4 win. One Dog was the fourth player in team history to go 6-for-6, and first to ever get three triples in a game.


Sept. 23, 2017 – White Sox slugger José Abreu became the third player in major league history to start his career with four straight seasons of at least 25 home runs and at least 100 RBIs, by virtue of his run-scoring ground out off of the Kansas City’s Scott Alexander at Guaranteed Rate Field. José joined Albert Pujois and Joe DiMaggio in accomplishing this rare feat. Pujols, DiMaggio, Abreu, Al Simmons and Ted Williams are the only players to start their careers with four straight seasons of 100 RBIs.

  1. Jeez – I forgot how that Metrodome surface was like superballs bouncing on concrete. 3 3s is pretty darned impressive, though, anywhere.
