September 27, 1959 - On this day in history in the NCSHOF, Sam Esposito went one for one at the plate on the final day of the regular season as the American League champion Chicago White Sox won at Detroit over the Tigers, before 13,895 at Briggs Stadium.  Esposito played for 10 years in the majors but perhaps is best known for 20 years as N.C. State’s head baseball coach. He was enshrined in the NCSHOF in 2012.
