Games and Moments

September 17 & 18,1971
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

The White Sox go into this weekend series with the Angels long eliminated from contention in the AL West. At this point they are playing for pride, trying to improve on 1970 as much as possible. There is also the possibility of finishing as high as 3rd place.

Bart Johnson takes the mound on Friday night and runs into trouble early. He gives up 3 Angel runs in the...

Games and Moments

September 12, 1971
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City

The White Sox continue to play good baseball as August rolls along. On the 15th they defeat the Orioles 2-1 to bring their record to 57-63. It wasn't a momentous game in the history of the franchise, but it was noteworthy for one reason-with the win, Chuck's charges surpassed their win total for all of 1970. They accomplished this with 42 games left in the season....

Games and Moments

August 8, 1971
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The Sox sweep a doubleheader from the A's in Oakland for the second time this season. Also for the second time this season, they entertain the paying customers with a bench-clearing incident. And for the second time, the center of the brawl was Bart Johnson.

Tommy John took the mound and, like Opening Day, fell behind 4-0, this time in the bottom of the 4th. The...

Games and Moments

July 27,1971
vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

The White Sox continue to win as July wears on. They are now in 4th place, having escaped the AL West cellar on the 9th.

This night against the Yankees was noteworthy-the game drew 13,346. Not much, but it pushed the team's attendance total for the year past the 1970 mark with two full months left in the season. The young Sox were playing improved baseball and the fans were responding....

Games and Moments

July 16,1971
vs. Washington Senators
at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium

The streaking Sox continue to play like a team on fire. They go into the All-Star break at 38-47 and are 16-9 since June 20.

Two Sox, Wilbur Wood and Bill Melton, are selected to be a part of the AL squad for that year's game in Detroit. Neither one plays in the game, though Wood is warming up in the 9th when the final out is made in the AL's 6-4 victory....
