Games and Moments

July 20, 1969
vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park

Walt Williams strode to the plate to lead off the bottom of the 7th inning of Game 1 of a Sunday doubleheader. The Sox were trailing 5-4 and hoping to get a rally going. On the mound stood well-traveled Moe Drabowsky of the Royals. Moe wound up and fired one plateward. At 3:17PM Walt slapped the pitch into right field for a single.

At that, the centerfield "Monster"...

Games and Moments

June 24, 1969
vs. Seattle Pilots
at Sick's Stadium

The Sox continue their west coast swing with a stop in Seattle for a four spot, starting with a twi-night doubleheader this night.

The Sox take the first one 6-4, with Wilbur Wood getting the win in relief. It was in the second game, though, that the fireworks flew.

In this game, the M&M Boys (May and Melton) continued to lay waste to AL pitching.

Games and Moments

June 20, 1969
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

It figures that once the White Sox got the hitting they so sorely lacked in previous seasons, the once-star pitching staff would give out.

Joel Horlen and Tommy John were actually reliable at this point. The lowered mound, astroturf infield and not-so-great defense caused their ERAs to take a bit of a hit, but they still had their good games. Gary Peters, however, was in his...

Games and Moments

May 2, 1969

The day after the extra inning loss to the Royals, Ed Short called what he termed "a reluctant press conference." At the meeting Sox manager Al Lopez announced his resignation, effective immediately. The Senor wanted to tough it out until season's end, but his distressed stomach could no longer hold out. He was in too much pain. Managing a team like the 1969 White Sox will do that to a guy. The Sox announced that Lopez's faithful...

Games and Moments

May 1, 1969
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City

Any illusions fans had of the 1969 team being a contender after the thrilling comeback win vs. the Twins had vaulted them into 1st place were quickly shattered over the next four games.

Minnesota slapped them 12-1 on the 26th to kick off the losing streak. Two more losses followed, including their first game against the Royals in Kansas City in the same stadium...
