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 22,1976
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Royals Stadium

The White Sox went to KC to meet up with the first place Royals, who were threatening to dethrone the five-time AL West champ Oakland, who was lagging 9 1/2 games behind. The Sox mercifully put their 10 game losing streak to a stop with a 11 inning, 2-1 win on the 21st.

The next night Jesse Jefferson took the mound for a rare start, carrying a line of 1-2 and an ERA of 6.83. His mound opponent was Steve...

June 20,1976
vs. New York Yankees
at Comiskey Park

The last-minute loss to the Indians on the 11th seemed to do something to the White Sox. They dropped the next three to Cleveland, two to Baltimore and three to the Yankees to make it nine straight losses going into this game.

It was Bat Day at Comiskey Park, one of the team's most popular promotions. Sure enough, the largest crowd of the season, 40,898, turned out on a nice Sunday afternoon to watch the contest....

June 11,1976
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Municipal Stadium

The Angels halt the Sox winning streak at 10 the day after Ken Brett's near no-no, but the Cinderella Sox keep on winning, reach a record of 27-22 and are 18-9 since starting the season at 9-16. They sit in third place, 4 1/2 games back of the Royals as they head out to Cleveland for a four game set.

Indians management took the opportunity to stage "Welcome Back, Bill Veeck" Night to honor...

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

In 1976, Bill Veeck arrived in town with his usual promotions and ideas to lure people to the ballpark and make the game a fun and enjoyable experience. He delivered on promotions as promised and came up with gimmicks such as installing a shower in the center field bleachers for fans to cool off on hot summer days. There is one idea he came up with that year that has turned out to be his most lasting contribution to baseball.

The story is...

May 26,1976
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

The arrival of Ken Brett coincided with a sudden burst of winning from the White Sox. Bart Johnson outdueling Nolan Ryan kicked off a winning streak that saw the Sox take two from Minnesota, following that up with a four game sweep of Chuck Tanner's A's.

Brett made his Sox debut in the first game of the A's series and blanked Oakland for five innings before being relieved by Clay Carroll.
