Games and Moments

June 29 & 30, 1972
vs. Oakland A's
at White Sox Park

The Sox go into a four game series with 1st place A's trailing the defending division champions by only 5 games. It is the closest they are to 1st place this late in the season since the great pennant chase of 1967.

The Sox win the first game 6-4 and the next night take the field for a twi-night doubleheader in front of 33,456 excited fans.

The first game featured...

Games and Moments

June 25,1972
vs. Texas Rangers
at Arlington Stadium

The White Sox get a fairly good idea of what it would be like to play 9 innings in the middle of a blast furnace; and also why the Astros in nearby Houston had ditched Colt Stadium in favor the large, comfy, air conditioned Astrodome.

The thermometer hits 105 degrees on this Sunday afternoon. The White Sox spend the day feeling like they were at a down-home Texas barbecue-on top...

Games and Moments

June 17,1972
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

The White Sox don't wilt in the wake of the dramatic doubleheader sweep of the Yankees. They go 6-3 over the next 9 games going into this doubleheader with the Red Sox, who are below .500 at this point in the season.

Bill Melton provides the heroics in this game. With two runners on base in the top of the 1st, Bill belts one that clears the green monster in left to stake the Sox out...

Games and Moments

June 4,1972
vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

The Sox go into this day still smarting from the 18-10 lashing laid on them by the Yankees the day before. They are in 2nd place in the AL West, behind the defending champ Oakland A's.

The first big news of this DH was the crowd. It was Bat Day at Sox Park, and 51,904 fans jammed their way into every single inch of available space to see the game. It was a far cry from the 672...

Ouch.

Even winning teams have days like this. The White Sox go up against the Yankees in front of a Saturday afternoon crowd of 35,309. They blow two leads, one in the top of the 9th, commit five errors and go into extras tied 10-10. In the 13th, the Yankees run up 8 runs, six of them coming in on three run home runs by Thurman Munson and Bobby Murcer. The Yankees take this one...
