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

May 8, 1970
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Memorial Stadium

Just when you thought it was safe to believe in the White Sox again...

The 11-13 Pale Hose go to Baltimore trying to claw their way back to .500 respectability. It doesn't go well for them, and for one player in particular.

Bill Melton was struggling at this point in the season. Not with the bat, mind you. He had 3 HRs and a .326 average.

His defense...

Games and Moments
May 6,1970
vs. Cleveland Indians
at White Sox Park

The Sox actually bounce back from the Baltimore bombing to take four of their next five. Included in these wins is a 13-6 win over the Tigers. The Sox trail in the game 4-2 before erupting for 8 runs in the 6th en route to the win.

The team is also hitting. The offensive woes of previous years seem to be all but cured. They have three hitters in the AL Top 10 (Hopkins, McCraw and Aparicio)...

Oof.

Some days, you just shouldn't get out of bed.

You know you have to, though, because there is money to be made and bills to be paid. So you get up and slog your way through the day, grousing the whole time that it's going to be lousy.. And usually, it is.

The 1970 White Sox were probably going through the "don't wanna go to work" stage by this...

Chicago Tribune
Sound Off, Sports Fans!
April 11, 1970

"I DON'T like the way some of the broadcasting stations have ignored the White Sox. WGN and WLS did previews on the Cubs for 1970, but not the Sox. Just because the Sox had an off-year last season doesn't mean they should be forgotten. In past years, when the Cubs were in the second division, the stations found air time for them. I don't want to take anything away from the Cubs, but there still are a lot of people...

vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at White Sox Park

You just can't keep a good Bud down.

Allen H. "Bud" Selig, head of Milwaukee Brewers, Inc., was bound and determined to bring major league baseball back to his home city.

Bud and his buds turned their attentions to the Seattle Pilots after John Allyn thwarted his plans to buy the Sox. The Pilots after one year and a 64-98 record were tottering on the...
