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

Games and Moments

July 20, 1969
vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park

Walt Williams strode to the plate to lead off the bottom of the 7th inning of Game 1 of a Sunday doubleheader. The Sox were trailing 5-4 and hoping to get a rally going. On the mound stood well-traveled Moe Drabowsky of the Royals. Moe wound up and fired one plateward. At 3:17PM Walt slapped the pitch into right field for a single.

At that, the centerfield "Monster"...

Games and Moments

June 24, 1969
vs. Seattle Pilots
at Sick's Stadium

The Sox continue their west coast swing with a stop in Seattle for a four spot, starting with a twi-night doubleheader this night.

The Sox take the first one 6-4, with Wilbur Wood getting the win in relief. It was in the second game, though, that the fireworks flew.

In this game, the M&M Boys (May and Melton) continued to lay waste to AL pitching.

vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

It figures that once the White Sox got the hitting they so sorely lacked in previous seasons, the once-star pitching staff would give out.

Joel Horlen and Tommy John were actually reliable at this point. The lowered mound, astroturf infield and not-so-great defense caused their ERAs to take a bit of a hit, but they still had their good games. Gary Peters, however, was in his...

Games and Moments

vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

King Carlos does it again!

The Sox are treading within a few games of .500 (19-22) going into this Monday night contest in Beantown.

Boston takes a 4-0 lead off starter Joel Horlen; three of those runs are driven in on home runs by Carl Yastrzemski and Rico Petrocelli.

The Sox wait until the top of the 8th to do something about it. Tommy McCraw singles with...

Games and Moments

May 25, 1969
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

The good news: In this game, Tommy John continues to look good coming back from his shoulder injury. He faces the Red Sox and gives up only two hits in 7 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.65. One of the two hits is a solo home run by 1st baseman George (Not C.) Scott.

The bad news: Red Sox starter Jim Lonborg, also coming back from an injury (he tore ligaments in his left knee during...
