Games and Moments
July 11,1968
vs. New York Yankees
at County Stadium, Milwaukee

The skipper had rumored clashes with veterans Tommie Davis and Luis Aparicio; along with General Manager Ed Short. The GM objected to Stanky barring reporters from the clubhouse, with the two getting into an argument over it.

Stanky also barred his players from speaking...

By this point in the season, Eddie Stanky was all but a raving maniac. The Brat did not take losing well, and the Sox' bad start and inability to extract itself from the resulting quagmire ate away at him.

His first act was to blame the media for the team's bad play and he barred them from the Sox clubhouse. Next he tried to motivate the players by introducing a series of petty fines...

vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

Sox enter the first game of this Sunday double header at 4-13, having ended their season-opening 10 game losing streak 9 days earlier.

Gary Peters, 0-3 going into the game, goes the distance in this one and gives up 1 run and six hits while striking out 9 as the Sox win 5-1. Miffed, perhaps, at his record and lack of run support, Peters himself provides the margin of victory by...
