October 2,1974
vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park

The White Sox close out their ho-hum season on a cold Wednesday afternoon in front of a smallish crowd of 1,969. Pride was the only thing at stake. The Sox went into the game at 79-80 and so needed a win to avoid a second straight season with a record below .500.

The Sox, for the most part, trotted out their A team, minus Bill Melton and Ed Herrmann. Bill Stein manned the hot corner for the Sox, while...

vs. Texas Rangers
at Arlington Stadium

Shortly after Dick Allen quits the team, Harry Caray infuriates Chuck Tanner by informing his viewers that the White Sox were better off now that Dick Allen was out of the picture. One thing he pointed out was that Allen made as many errors in the field-15, awful for a 1st baseman-as Bucky Dent had made at shortstop.

"You're gonna have a better team spirit" Caray told Tribune columnist Gary...

DICK ALLEN QUITS

I remember this Saturday afternoon very well. It was a warm day with plenty of sunshine. My aunt got married, and although I was only five years old I can recall some of the events of that day very clearly.

While I was partying with my family, Dick Allen drove to the ballpark with a sense of purpose. He hadn't been playing much in the past couple weeks and was nursing a cold. The night before, Friday the 13th, he had gone...

September 8,1974
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

The Sox continue to slog along at .500, a team neither here nor there. At this point pennant dreams have long since evaporated and the Sox are playing for second place, their second straight disappointing season after 1972 had ended with so much hope.

Bee Bee Richard, the shortstop that at one time was supposed to make everyone forget Luis Aparicio, was the star of this game. Bee Bee had spent the better...

vs. Kansas City Royals
at Royals Stadium

The White Sox of the early 1970s had their problems with pitching. Wilbur Wood was never one of them. The knuckleballer had been the solid anchor of a sometimes shaky rotation since the moment that Chuck Tanner and Johnny Sain had made him a starter before the 1971 season. Wood quickly became the iron pitcher with the rubber arm, and Chuck's favorite go-to guy. He hurled over 300 innings from 1971-73 and from the...
