1975 Offseason

John Allyn went into September with no firm offers for the White Sox. A stumbling block was Allyn's insistence that the buyer also purchase White Sox Park, which no one was willing to do. Tony Tortoriello of Torco was still an interested party, but wanted the City of Chicago to buy the park and lease it back to him. City officials were in the midst of clashing with Bears owner George Halas, who had threatened to move his team to Arlington Heights unless he got a new stadium....

September 27,1975
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

John Allyn's financial woes grew larger as the season wore on. Things were getting so bad that the fireworks shot off after every White Sox home run had to be cut back. Only one volley was fired off after a Sox roundtripper instead of two or three. Everybody was late in getting paid-from visiting clubs who wanted their 40% cut of the gate receipts right on down to the Andy Frain ushers. Allyn scrambled to...

September 21,1975
vs. Texas Rangers
at White Sox Park

Wilbur Wood had gotten off to an atrocious start in 1975, at one point sporting a record of 2-10 and an ERA over 5. He managed to get things together and start winning, but he was at the point in the season where he was going to miss out on one milestone but achieve a more dubious one.

Woodie was at this point 15-19. He didn't have enough starts left to achieve a 5th straight 20 win season. He did, however,...

September 6,1975
vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The Sox continued to stink up the field as a team, but some players were having standout seasons. Three of them shone in this game.

Jim Kaat took the mound this night going for his 20th win of the season.This was actually Kaat's second attempt at number 20, his first one had ended in a loss to Kansas City.

He received help from another player having a good year, Jorge Orta. Kaat's...

August 29,1975
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Memorial Stadium

The White Sox continue to slog through August at a sluggish, slightly below .500 pace. The hot streak of July that pushed them to .500 respectability is long past and forgotten and the team is sitting at 64-68 going into this game.

The Sox wasted no time getting things going against Oriole starter Ross Grimsley. Ken Henderson, whose batting average was in the .250 range, started things off by teeing...
