June 6,1977
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The Yankees took the rubber match of the three game set with the Sox by clubbing six home runs, two of which jumped off the bats of ex-Sox Carlos May and Bucky Dent. The Sox then headed out to Minnesota for a two game set with the first place Twins. The Sox were two games behind at the start of the series, a sweep would put them in 1st by percentage points.

Ken Brett took the mound and did a fine...

June 4,1977
vs. New York Yankees
at Comiskey Park

One night after being bruised for seven runs in one inning by the White Sox, the Penthouse Boys repaid the Poorhouse Dwellers in kind.

35,789 fans had barely settled into their seats when the Yankees blew the game open with 7 runs in the top of the 2nd. The big blow came when Thurman Munson singled with the bases loaded. Two runs came in on the hit and one more scored on an error by Chet Lemon. That...

June 3, 1977
vs. New York Yankees
at Comiskey Park

If any two teams symbolized the widening chasm of baseball's haves and have-nots in this new era of free agency, it was the Yankees and the White Sox.

The Yankees were the team in the penthouse-the elites who were the absolute best at what they did, and thus the richest; looked up at with a mixture of hatred and envy by others who resented their success while wanting it for themselves.

The White...

May 22,1977
vs. Detroit Tigers
at Comiskey Park

Wilbur Wood took the mound this Sunday afternoon for his first start since May 9 of the previous year, when he had his knee shattered by a line drive. The competition would be the very same Tigers club against whom that had happened. The results were just as pretty.

It was Bat Day at Comiskey Park, and a crowd of 31,030 came out for it. Not as much as recent years, like the 51,094 who turned out in...

May 14,1977
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Comiskey Park

The Sox get hot in May, going 8-3 over their first 11 games. They came home from a two week road trip to meet the Indians on Friday the 13th, which the ever-creative Veeck promoted as "anti-Superstition Night." Mirrors were brought out to the field and smashed in defiance of old wives' tales. The Sox then slapped the Indians 5-3.

The next day was a bright and early game. The Sox were holding...
