July 25,1977
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

By the time the All-Star break came around, the White Sox had taken the baseball world completely by storm. Just who were these guys? The new power structure in baseball was supposed to make the rich teams richer and the poor teams S.O.L. The George Steinbrenners and Gene Autrys of the game were going to gobble up all the best players and turn out instant contenders that would leave all other teams in the dust. But here...

vs. Boston Red Sox
at Comiskey Park

The city of Chicago woke up on the morning of the Fourth of July to find both the White Sox and Cubs in 1st place. Although both teams had been in first earlier in June, this was the first time since 1967 that both Chicago teams sat atop their league/division this late in the season. Fans on both sides would normally react to this by rooting hard for their team while simultaneously fretting that they would blow it while the...

July 3,1977
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Comiskey Park

The White Sox came out for a Sunday doubleheader hoping to put a little distance between themselves and the Twins, who were hoping to take two and regain the top spot. A crowd of 33,898 turned out and was so raucous and loud that the old south side ballyard was practically shaken to the rafters. In the process the delirious fans brought about the one thing that everybody remembers most about the South Side Hitmen-the curtain...

vs. Minnesota Twins
at Comiskey Park

First place showdown, day 2. The Twins took the field that day looking to take the top spot back from the White Sox. Once again, they would have no idea what hit them.

It was a hot, sunny July day and Harry Caray was in the centerfield bleachers calling the action when the Sox trotted out onto the field for the start of the game.

The Twins once again struck first, getting two runs off Sox...

vs. Minnesota Twins
at Comiskey Park

The Twins came to the south side for a 1st place showdown with the White Sox, who were trailing them by only a game. It turned out to be a weekend like no other in team history. The outpouring of emotion from the fans was on a level not seen since the Glory Days of the pennant-winning Go Go Sox of 1959. Not even Stanky's Boys of 1967 or Chuck's Charges in 1972 generated this type of fan reaction. This is the weekend...
