      • The annual Civil Rights Game, held for the first time as part of the regular season, paid tribute to those who have worked for equality, including Hank Aaron. Aaron, boxer Muhammad Ali and entertainer Bill Cosby were honored on the field before Hall of Famer Frank Robinson threw out the ceremonial first pitch to fellow Hall of Famer Tony Perez.

      • The teams dressed in their 1964 uniforms to highlight the year that the Civil Rights Act was passed outlawing discrimination. The White Sox wore all-blue uniforms while the Reds wore vest-style jerseys featuring large numbers on the back with the players' names below.

      • (on the pregame ceremionies)
        Chicago Manager Ozzie Guillen: Awesome. One thing about players: They don't know about baseball, what those people came through and what they did for us. They have to learn. I had all my team out there watching.
