In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

June 26,1975
vs. Texas Rangers
at White Sox Park

The June 22 wins against the Twins kicked off a winning streak that reached four games going into this Thursday afternoon match vs. the Texas Rangers. Wilbur Wood, 4-10 with a 5.20 ERA at this point, went against Ferguson Jenkins, who was following up a 25-13 season in 1974 with a so-so 8-7 record. Still it promised to be a fun match up.

7,681 turned out on a nice day to see the game. The Sox kicked off the scoring...

vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The Sox were lagging nine games under .500 and sale rumors were starting to burn when Roland Hemond pulled off two deals at the trading deadline of June 15.

The first one was done to cut down John Allyn's large payroll. Stan Bahnsen aka "Stanley Struggle" was traded to the Oakland A's, who were in 1st place and looking to shore up their pitching in anticipation of another division title. In exchange...

June 14,1975
vs. New York Yankees
at Shea Stadium

By mid-June Deron Johnson wasn't making anybody forget about Dick Allen. The 36 year old veteran had a batting average hovering around the .220 mark. He did have a few moments, though. He delivered game-breaking or winning hits a couple of times. Not that it helped the team much. They were 24-33, 9 1/2 games back and resting in last place in the AL West. Attendance was also back to pre-Dick Allen levels as well.

at White Sox Park

The White Sox decided to do something before this night's game that it had never done in the past-stage an Old-Timer's Game. There had been player reunions in the past, but they had consisted merely of a dinner and a pregame introduction to the fans, not a game.

The reason, according to Robert Markus, is that Ed Short had always steadfastly refused. Short "wanted Johnny Mostil to be remembered as...
