August 20,1977
vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at Milwaukee County Stadium

The Sox were in desperate need of pitching, so Bill Veeck and Roland Hemond went shopping around for someone to join the staff. They soon found a willing trade partner in...the Chicago Cubs?

Yes, it was true. John "No Way" Holland had stepped down from the position of Cubs General Manager in 1975. In his chair now sat 57 year old Chicago-born baseball lifer Bob Kennedy. Unlike...

August 16,1977
vs. New York Yankees
at Yankee Stadium

The Sox followed up their power display against Seattle by losing four of their next five, including two to Cleveland and one to Texas on the 12th that dropped them out of 1st place for the first time since July 1. They regained the top spot the next night with a win and held on to it despite losing the next game. Another loss to the Yankees in the first of this two game miniseries dropped them back to second place....

August 9,1977
vs. Seattle Mariners
at Comiskey Park

The White Sox returned home after the sweep in Kansas City and had a simple message for the Royals and anybody else who thought their hat-tipping antics were "bush." That message, essentially, was "screw you."

"I don't know who gave you the idea we might stop acknowledging the applause after our home runs" Chet Lemon told Dave Condon. "We never gave it any thought....

August 5,1977
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Royals Stadium

The White Sox held a team meeting after the routing the Royals and agreed to tone their act down.

"I think we're learning our lesson" Bart Johnson explained. "Being in first place is reason enough to get the other team angry, you don't have to give them other reasons." He also said that it was OK to acknowledge your fans, but not to the point of getting the other team mad. "We've...

July 31,1977
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

The Sox and Royals concluded their big series with a Sunday doubleheader. 50,412 screaming, singing, joyous fans turned out for this one, the Sox' first gate of 50,000 plus since 1973. They witnessed one of the great classics in White Sox history in the first game, followed by a Royal blast in game 2. After the games, the Royals, two players specifically, let loose.

At around this time another growing Comiskey...
