    Michael Jordan

    After retiring from the National Basketball Association, Michael Jordan surprised the sports world by signing a minor league baseball contract with the Chicago White Sox. He reported to spring training and was assigned to the MLB team. He played 17 games with the White Sox before the organization sent him to the Birmingham Barons on March 31, 1994.[1] Jordan has stated this decision was made to pursue the dream of his late father, who had always envisioned his son as a Major League Baseball player.[citation needed]

    Regular season

    • July 15, 1994: During a game against the White Sox, Indians outfielder Albert Belle's bat was confiscated by umpire Dave Phillips.[11] It was the result of White Sox manager Gene Lamont believing that the bat was corked. During the game, Indians pitcher Jason Grimsley removed a ceiling tile in his manager's office and clambered on top of an Script error: No such module "convert". cinder block.[12] He replaced the corked bat with a conventional bat but the bat had Paul Sorrento's name on it. Belle was suspended for seven games.[11]

    By Friday, August 12, the White Sox had compiled a 67-46 record through 113 games.
