Games and Moments

May 31,1971
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at White Sox Park


The White Sox continue to slog along in last place in the AL West. They can hit the ball, but fielding misadventures abound, led by Bee Bee Richard, who by this time has 15 errors and is being auditioned by Chuck Tanner in centerfield.

This Memorial Day double dip with the Orioles provided plenty of fireworks and entertainment. And there were two games played as well....

vs. Washington Senators
at White Sox Park


Newbies shine on the Sox stage during this night's twi-night twinbill vs. the Senators, making new personnel director Roland Hemond look like a trading genius.

Game 1 sees Hemond acquisition Tom Bradley, he of the thin frame and Woody Allen glasses, fire major league heat at the Senators. Bradley scatters five hits and whiffs five in tossing his second complete...

May 6,1971
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

"It was our worst game of the year" Chuck Tanner said in summing up this day's effort against the Bosox. He was being too kind. The White Sox committed a whopping six errors and other miscues in getting bombed, 10-1.

The game itself, held on a Thursday afternoon with overcast skies and temperatures in the 40s, was hastily rescheduled after a rainout the day before. Red...

Joel Horlen injured his knee in the final spring game vs. the Cubs on April 4. New pitching coach Johnny Sain's solution was to promote reliever Wilbur Wood to the starting rotation.

Woodie wasn't so hot on the idea when it was presented to him. He was quite satisfied in the bullpen, thank you very much. A pep talk...

The White Sox' Opening Day DH sweep of the A's created a huge buzz over the team, one that was positive for once. 44,250 crammed their way into White Sox Park on Good Friday for the home opener. The crowd got a huge thrill when Chuck Tanner's boys beat the Twins 3-2 on a 9th inning single by Rich McKinney. (See: Game of the Year, 1971).
