On September 11, 1976 — 1976 – Minnie Minoso comes to bat for the White Sox after a 12-year hiatus. He goes hitless in his three at bats against Frank Tanana, but his appearance makes him one of a handful of major league players to play in four decades. His at bat in 1980 will match him with Nick Altrock as a 5-decade player.
