Sox Blasts from the Past! 

By Mark Liptak

I recently came across a web site that I think Sox fans will really enjoy. I discovered it as I visited a site that is devoted to the ill fated Seattle Pilots franchise. (Shades of Tommy Davis and Gerry McNertney!) The site had two audio cuts of actual radio games from that team in 1969. At the bottom of the page was a link to a company that has over 1,600 MLB games complete, unedited and with the actual commericals on cassette tape.

Sox Blasts from the Past!

Let me Hear It!

Now you need to know that I don't work for this company, I also know it's the policy of White Sox Interactive not to endorse or promote certain commercial sites and that's not my intention. All I'm doing is letting you fans out there know that if you'd like to hear once again Billy Pierce pitching against the Yankees, Dick Allen swinging that mammoth 40 once bat of his or Harry Caray singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" when he still had his faculties, you can!

First off here's the basic information..... the website name is www.baseballtapes.com/baseballtapes/. The name of the company is Danrick Enterprises, P.O. Box 1347, Clifton, New Jersey 07015-1347. The cost is $12.35 per tape (unless noted) plus $0.85 postage for each tape. An "&" sign means that game is $13.95.

 You'll be able to hear some selected highlights from time to time on White Sox Interactive thanks to the work of George Bova and his friends but in order to get a real sense of history you need to hear the entire game.

 Below is a listing of Sox games that I have found going through their web site catelogue. Space limitations prevent me from giving descriptions but if you're a true Sox fan, you should be able to figure out the post season games, the no hitters, games counting down to "magic numbers" and the brilliant individual performances, like Tom Seaver winning his 300th game.

 One final point, these games that I've listed are games that the Sox won and came from years in which they had a winning season. The website has many more games where the Sox lost or from years where they didn't win at least 82 games. If that's your pleasure, then I suggest you check the lists out for yourself.

  So here goes...ENJOY!
