On November 9, 1950, the Chicago White Sox release long time shortstop Luke Appling. The future Hall of Famer, who had been with Chicago over the last 20 years, will become the manager of the Southern Association’s Memphis Chicks.

The 43 year-old future Hall of Fame infielder, known as ‘Old Aches and Pains’ to his teammates, compiled a lifetime batting average of .310 during his two-plus decades with Chicago. Appling will be replaced at shortstop by Venezuelan rookie Chico Carrasquel.
