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

August 8, 1971
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The Sox sweep a doubleheader from the A's in Oakland for the second time this season. Also for the second time this season, they entertain the paying customers with a bench-clearing incident. And for the second time, the center of the brawl was Bart Johnson.

Tommy John took the mound and, like Opening Day, fell behind 4-0, this time in the bottom of the 4th. The...

Games and Moments

July 27,1971
vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

The White Sox continue to win as July wears on. They are now in 4th place, having escaped the AL West cellar on the 9th.

This night against the Yankees was noteworthy-the game drew 13,346. Not much, but it pushed the team's attendance total for the year past the 1970 mark with two full months left in the season. The young Sox were playing improved baseball and the fans were responding....

Games and Moments

July 16,1971
vs. Washington Senators
at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium

The streaking Sox continue to play like a team on fire. They go into the All-Star break at 38-47 and are 16-9 since June 20.

Two Sox, Wilbur Wood and Bill Melton, are selected to be a part of the AL squad for that year's game in Detroit. Neither one plays in the game, though Wood is warming up in the 9th when the final out is made in the AL's 6-4 victory....

Games and Moments

July 3 & 4,1971
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City


The White Sox play like a team on fire after their 18-8 thrashing of the Twins. That win kicked off a 6 game winning streak, followed by 4 losses to the Angels. But no matter. The promptly go out and win 6 straight again to go 12-4 in the 16 games since dropping to 22-38.

The last two of these wins are back-to-back 1-0 complete game shutouts over...

Games and Moments

June 20,1971
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The White Sox at this point of the season are slogging along in last place at 22-38, behind the pace of the 106 loss team of 1970. There are bright spots like the pitching of Wilbur Wood and Tom Bradley. The hitting is also improved, with Bill Melton leading the team with 12 home runs.

The defense still leaves a little to be desired, as the team makes youthful mistakes....
