On June 20, 1973, Cy Acosta of the Chicago White Sox becomes the first American League pitcher to bat in a game since the designated hitter rule went into effect. Acosta comes to bat after DH Tony Muser moves to first base in place of Dick Allen. Acosta strikes out in his one at-bat, which comes in the eighth inning of an 8-3 win over the California Angels.
