On May 16, 1953, White Sox pitcher Tommy Byrne who was a decent hitting pitcher would be called upon by skipper Paul Richards to pinch hit in the 9th inning vs. the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium with the bases loaded and two out. The Sox were trailing 3-1. On a full count, Byrne would connect for a Grand Slam off of Yankees hurler Ewell Blackwell, scoring Minnie Minoso, Tom Wright and Jim Rivera to become only the third Pale Hose hurler in the history of the franchise to accomplish the feat helping the Sox to a 5-3 win, the other two are Frank Owen (1906) and Billy Pierce (1950) It has not been accomplished since.
