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:
June 15, 1967 vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

Ouch. This one hurts. The 1st place White Sox meet the 3rd place Red Sox in the last of a three game series having split the first two games.

Bruce Howard goes for the Sox and pitches 7 scoreless innings and Hoyt Wilhelm follows it up with two. In true 1967 Sox fashion, they are unable to score as John Waslewski of Boston throws a nine inning shutout with nothing to show for it.

Games and Moments:
May 24, 1967 vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

Sox 1st baseman Tommie McCraw is the hitting star of this Wednesday matinee. He hits three home runs and gets a franchise record-tying 8 RBI, becoming the first Sox player since Gus Zernial in 1950 to score a home run hat trick. Two of the homers are off starter and loser Dean Chance. The 3rd comes in the 9th off Jim Kaat.

Starting pitcher Gary Peters allows one run and strikes out 9....

The 8-7 White Sox take on the Indians in the second game of a Sunday doubleheader and beat Cleveland, 4-2. Sox get two RBIs from Tommie Agee on a single and sacrifice fly; Al Weis and Walt Williams chip in an RBI apiece. Buford and Agee also swipe bases in the game.

vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

The White Sox are 0-1 going into this game, having lost the opener to Boston in front of 8,000 Fenway partisans.

Today looks like more of the same as Boston enters the top of the 9th winning 5-4. But in what would be the first of many thrillers for the 67ers, the Sox of White rise up and score 5 unearned runs. They are aided and abetted by the Boston defense, which commits three...

Game of the Year 1977
July 31 vs. Kansas City Royals (1st Game of DH)
at Comiskey Park

The story of the 1977 White Sox, indeed the White Sox of the Bill Veeck era was written on December 16, 1975, a mere six days after Veeck's 11th hour purchase of the White Sox was finalized.

On that day an arbiter named Peter Seitz ruled that three players-Andy Messersmith, Dave McNally and Mike Cuellar-had played out their options with their teams and were free to sell themselves...
