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

July 1,1974
vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park

You would think that, between Opening Day and Seat Cushion Night, all the yahoos making White Sox Park their new home would've gotten all the stupidity out of their system. And you would be wrong.

The game itself was on national television on Monday night, and the Sox responded with one of their worst performances of the season. About 20 or so blockheads did the team no favors with their performance...

June 29-30,1974
vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

Jorge Orta, the quiet, painfully shy Mexican-born second baseman, was the star of these two games with the Twins.

Orta was beginning to come into his own as a player this season after two seasons of ups and downs, including his first year of 1972, when he had made the club out of spring but was demoted during the season.

The Sox still saw good things in Orta and he began justifying their...

June 18,1974
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Municipal Stadium

The offense was in full flower this night in support of Jim Kaat, who had been struggling in the early part of the season. He hadn't won a game since May 5 and was demoted out of the rotation at the beginning of June. To make matters worse, Kaat, along with other Sox pitchers, were the target of barbs from Harry Caray, who didn't hesitate to tell his audience about the Sox' lack of pitching, again and again. The...

June 8-9,1974
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

Ron Santo was displeased. If the union between the North Side icon and the South Side team could be likened to a marriage, then Ronnie at this point was sleeping on the couch.

It didn't start out this way. At first all was love and happiness, as is the case with newlywed couples. Ron boasted about the camaraderie of the team, how they made him feel welcome, the leadership of Dick Allen, the managerial...

vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

Whenever a relief pitcher enters a critical, late inning situation-say, one out, his team up by one run but with the bases loaded and the other team threatening to blow the game open-and gets out of the jam, he is said to have "put out the fire." There was a fire put out in the 8th inning of this game, but the save didn't go to Terry Forster, Rich Gossage or any other member of the Sox bullpen; nor does it appear...
