A Bit of History and What a Weird Inning.

321561_587998201219344_290982164_nI can’t take credit for this one, it has come across my Facebook Feed. Thanks to Chicago White Sox Nation for this bit, and what a strange one it is. ON this date April 22, 1959  one of the strangest  innings in baseball took place. The White Sox scored 11 runs in one inning on the way to a 20 – 6 win over the Kansas city Royals. What is unique of the event, the eleven runs scored on ONE hit……
