August 4, 2000 - Catcher Carlton Fisk is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Even though Fisk played more games and for more years with the White Sox, he goes in wearing the colors of the Red Sox. Fisk explains to the Chicago media, that his choice in no way reflected any animosity towards White Sox fans but was based in part on his treatment by the organization and ownership.

August 4, 1992 - The White Sox set the franchise record by scoring nine runs in the 3rd inning of a game in Chicago against the Twins. Wilson Alvarez gets the win as the Sox won 19 - 11. George Bell had five RBI’s.


Is this the franchise record for the 3rd inning or for any inning? Because the worst team in Sox history scored eleven runs against Boston in one inning.

August 6, 1959 - The third and final marathon game of the 1959 season. The Sox battled the Orioles in Baltimore and played for 18 innings before curfew stopped the night game tied at one all. The game lasted only four hours. The most significant item to come out of it...the incredible performance by the Sox starter Billy Pierce. Pierce pitches 16 innings! Let me repeat that...16 innings allowing one run on 11 hits.

August 7, 1970 - In the midst of the worst season in franchise history, some smiles are seen after the Sox unveil the ‘Big White Machine,’ at Comiskey Park. The car was a 1929 Ford rebuilt and put together by Sox players Ed Herrmann, Bill Melton, Syd O’Brien and the folks at Hawkinson Ford. It circled Comiskey Park every time the Sox won a home game (which wasn’t often!)

They come in the team’s 110th game which sets the franchise mark for fastest to 100 RBI’s. Thomas held the old mark set the year before, when he collected his 100th RBI in the team’s 118th contest.

August 10, 1990 - The odds had to be a million to one. They were two of the smallest players in major league baseball yet on this night in the second game of a double header at Comiskey Park, the impossible happened. In the 2nd inning, the Sox Craig Grebeck and Ozzie Guillen hit back to back home runs off flame throwing Nolan Ryan. It was part of a four run inning in a 5 - 1 win and a sweep of the two games. Making matters even more incredible was that both Grebeck and Guillen pulled their shots. Craig reaching the left field seats and Ozzie right field!

It was the start of the feud between Ryan and the White Sox that culminated with Robin Ventura charging the mound in Texas after getting brushed back by Ryan in 1993.

August 11, 1964 - The Sox finally win a game against the Yankees having lost 10 straight to them that season. Why was this so important? Simple… the Sox won 98 games this season and finished one game behind New York! Making things tougher for Sox fans is that the team closed out the season winning nine straight, unfortunately the Yankees reeled off a streak that saw them win 15 of their last 19 down the stretch.

August 11, 1972 - It was one of the longest games in Sox history and was the start of a four game series that may have been the best in the decade. The Sox went to Oakland fighting the A’s for first place in the division, and the day before, this game was called by curfew with the score tied at three after 17 innings. It was picked up on this day and went another two innings before Joe Rudi ended matters with a two run home run as the A’s won 5 - 3. In the regularly slated game, Cub castoff Dave Lemonds and Cy Acosta outdueled “Catfish” Hunter allowing two hits in a 1 - 0 win. The Sox and A’s would split the final two games of this series.

The last time Downing played a game against Detroit it was in Chicago, in his major league debut. He had just entered the game when he caught a foul pop up, diving in the process, and tearing up his knee which sidelined him until this game.

August 11, 1994 - The unthinkable finally happens as major league players’ strike the rest of the season because of the unwillingness by owners to negotiate fairly on a new contract. (A charge later upheld by the Federal courts.) At the time of the strike, the Sox are leading the division, have the second best record in the A.L. and the third best in all of baseball. They were on their way to back to back playoff appearances for the first time in franchise history. Many Sox fans blame owner Jerry Reinsdorf for forcing the strike, being a hard line owner and sabotaging his own teams chance to get to that elusive World Series. Frank Thomas ends the season very close to the Triple Crown, hitting .353 with 38 home runs and 101 RBI’s. He does get his second consecutive MVP award though.

August 12, 1990 - The Sox set what is believed to be the longest wait in baseball history before calling a game because of rain. The Sox were slated to play the Rangers at Comiskey Park in an afternoon contest starting at 1PM Central time. Persistent rains caused a delay before the first pitch was even thrown. Because this was the last trip into Chicago by Texas, the Sox waited until the evening before "officially" calling the game. The wait lasted seven hours and 23 minutes!!! As it turned out the Sox had to play the make up game in Arlington as part of a double header the following week after Texas said they would not make a special trip back to Chicago on an off day to make the game up.

This game marked the beginning of the end of the dream. The Sox lost a controversial game to the Twins 3 - 2 when Tommy Agee was called out at 3rd base on a close play in the 9th inning. The Sox dropped out of first place for the first time in two months. Afterwards manager Eddie Stanky kept Vice President Hubert Humphrey waiting outside the Sox locker room with reporters. Stanky later said "what do I need Humphrey for? Can he hit?"

August 14, 1983 - Carlton Fisk appeared to hit a go ahead home run in the 5th inning off the Orioles Scott McGregor only to have home plate umpire Jim Evans overrule 3rd base umpire Greg Kosc and say it was a ground rule double. The decision was based on the impression that a fan appeared to have leaned over the wall to catch it. The Sox wind up losing 2 - 1. That fan then called Jimmy Piersall’s radio show afterwards to give his side of the story. TV replays showed he was not leaning over the wall when he caught the ball. Manager Tony LaRussa went ballistic…arguing, kicking dirt, then taking the 3rd base bag out of its position and flinging it towards the Sox dugout. Naturally he was thrown out for it. Just another in a series of bizarre plays that took place against Baltimore down through the years.

Fisk’ record for catchers would eventually be passed by Mike Piazza.

DeBartolo though was voted down by the other owners due to speculation about his association with mobsters and his acknowledged horse racing interests. The way was then opened for Jerry Reinsdorf and Eddie Einhorn to purchase the team. The Sox were actually an ‘afterthought’ for the two men. Einhorn was part of a group trying to buy the San Diego Padres and Reinsdorf was part of a group attempting to own the New York Mets.

He slammed a pitch from the YankeesLindy McDaniel into the center field bleachers directly under the scoreboard at Comiskey Park, becoming the first Sox player to ever do this. Sox announcer Harry Caray, who was broadcasting the game from that area nearly caught the ball in his fishing net which he kept with him for just such an occasion. The Sox would win it 5 - 2.

On a personal note, the ball landed about ten feet from where I was sitting in the bleachers and I'll never forget the look on the face of Yankees center fielder Bobby Murcer when he saw where it landed.


Also a trivia note, another fan sitting in those same bleachers on that day was Richard Roeper.

Third base umpire Ed Hurley called time! Nobody remembered seeing him do it but he refused to change his call. Both Lopez and Fox were ejected in the confrontation afterwards. The next day Hurley was quoted in the newspapers as saying "I wish to heck I hadn’t called it, I’d gladly take it back...”End result was the Sox lost, and were now three games behind the Yankees. Kluszewski later recalled that this game was the one that broke the team’s spirit that season.

August 30, 1981 - The Sox deal three prospects to the Twins for pitcher Jerry Koosman. It was a small deal that turned out to have big implications in future years. Koosman was like a second pitching coach, tutoring young Sox hurlers. He’d start games, pitch long relief and be a situational left hander in his two plus years on the South Side. He’d win 23 games and save five more.

August 30, 1983 - Carlton Fisk, one of the fastest catchers in baseball history, (He once stole 19 bases in a season) hits an inside the park home run off the Rangers Dave Stewart at Comiskey Park. His drive struck the top of the wall in left center field and bounded back towards the infield. While the Texas outfielders were tracking the ball down, Fisk circled the bases. The Sox won that night, 5 - 0.

August 30, 1990 - Ron Karkovice, one of the slowest catchers in baseball history, (although he amazingly had 10 steals in 1992!) hits an inside the park grand slam off the Twins David West at Minnesota. With the bases loaded in the 4th inning Karkovice hit a line drive just over shortstop that rolled to the wall in left center. Outfielder Dan Gladden was picking the ball up when he started to slip and fall. As he did so, he tossed the ball towards outfielder John Moses to try to start a relay, except that Moses wasn’t looking for it and the ball rolled towards center field. By the time the Twins got to it, Karkovice and all the runners had scored. It was the difference in a 4 - 3 win.

Royko asked the duo how they handle baseball wives who disliked the comments they made about their husbands. Caray said “You know what Mike. I would love to call all the wives together someday and tell them what their husbands say about them across the ballfield.” Piersall’s answer was more controversial to say the least. “First of all they were horny broads that wanted to get married, and they wanted a little money, a little security and a big strong ballplayer. I traveled, I played. I got a load of those broads too.”

In a game the Sox were leading Minnesota 8 - 2 in the 9th inning, Manuel brought in relief pitcher Jose Paniagua to get some work in. The Sox had a one game lead over the Twins and this was the second of a four game series at U.S. Cellular Field. Paniagua allowed four runs giving Minnesota momentum even though they’d lose 8 - 6.

The Twins promptly won the final two games, swept the Sox the following week in Minnesota and won the second of three consecutive divisional titles. Paniagua, as he was leaving the field, made an obscene gesture at the home plate umpire and was released by G.M. Kenny Williams later that evening. Manuel’s dismissal would come a few weeks later.

September 26, 2011 – He was considered “the face of the franchise” for eight seasons but on this night after a 4-3 win over Toronto, manager Ozzie Guillen announced he was leaving after owner Jerry Reinsdorf agreed to let him out of the final year of his contract.

Guillen, who was the 1985 A.L. Rookie of the Year with the White Sox, won the World Series in 2005 and also got the club into the playoffs in 2008. He had five winning seasons in the eight years as manager and was named Manager of the Year for his work in 2005.

In that magical season of 2005, “Ozzieball” resulted in the Sox getting off to the best start in their history and with a perfect blend of pitching, speed, power and the ability to execute the fundamentals the Sox were in first place from wire to wire. Then they blitzed through the post season putting together an 11-1 record that was the 3rd best post season record in baseball history.

Guillen’s passion and enthusiasm for the franchise was unparalleled but at times he was his own worst enemy.

Over his final years in Chicago he became increasingly thin-skinned and defensive when criticism was directed his way and he lashed out at Sox fans on more than one occasion. Among his famous rants against the fans were one where he said that (paraphrasing) ‘if Sox fans don’t like what they see on the field they should stay home or not watch on TV,’ and another in May 2011 where he claimed Sox fans would not remember him “as soon as you leave the ballpark they don’t care about you. They don’t. The monuments, the statues…they pee on them when they get drunk.” On the afternoon of the day he left the team Guillen told reporters that he would not want to return to fulfill his 2012 contract unless he got an extension and more money.

Ozzie’s relationship with G.M. Kenny Williams also deteriorated over the final few years because the two men appeared to have different viewpoints over how the roster should be constructed and the style to which the Sox should play. Guillen’s family didn’t help the situation with social media comments derogatory to Williams.

Many felt when Ozzie was hired in November 2003 that he was the right man for the right team at the right time and for a few years he was. Unfortunately the manager with the longest tenure since Al Lopez let some personal foibles override a good situation and it was best for all that a parting of the ways take place.

The only run scored whenTommy McCraw wasn’t able to catch a pop up off the bat of Washington’s Fred Valentine in the 1st inning. NBC-TV had erected a barrier for their field level cameras in case the World Series came to Comiskey Park and Valentine’s pop fell into that enclosed area. On the very next pitch Valentine singled driving in the only run. That season marked the 17th straight that the Sox finished better then .500. Only two other franchises, the Yankees and Baltimore have ever exceeded it.

On the field, Toronto rips the Sox 7 - 3 but by the middle of the game, not one fan cares. Michael Jordan who threw out the ceremonial first pitch confirms reports that he is holding a press conference the next morning to announce his retirement from the Bulls. Fans at the game and around the city are in shock.

Adding insult to injury, future Hall Of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk and Chicago native and former Sox pitcher Donn Pall are turned away by security guards when they attempt to wish the team "good luck" in the locker room before the game started. The White Sox claim the rules were set by Major League Baseball but no fan or media member is fooled by that comment. Most media members feel Fisk was turned away on explicit orders from owner Jerry Reinsdorf. It’s an insult Fisk never forgets. Reinsdorf then takes an unprecedented step of apologizing to the team in the clubhouse before the start of Game #2 saying he had no wish to take away their spotlight because of the Jordan situation.

October 6, 2000 - Another dramatic and fantastic season is ruined as the Sox fall apart and lose the divisional series in three straight games to the Mariners. The M’s clinch the series despite a heroic effort from pitcher James Baldwin. ‘JB,’ pitching with a bad arm, holds the Mariners to one run on three hits in six innings. Seattle scores the series clinching run in the 2 - 1 win on a suicide squeeze from Carlos Guillen in the 9th inning. Replays showed him clearly out of the batters box on the bunt attempt, but Sox manager Jerry Manuel never protested the play. During the series, the Sox run their home post season losing streak to nine games in a row, dating back to the 1959 World Series. The all time big league record for home post season futility is ten straight, set by the Phillies.

October 7, 2005 - At Fenway Park the White Sox win their first post season series of any kind since 1917 by beating Boston 5 - 3. Paul Konerko’s two run home run gives the Sox some breathing room and then pitcher Orlando Hernandez saves it. Entering into a bases loaded, no out, one run lead situation in the 6th inning, ‘El Duque’ gets two pop outs and a strike out. It was an amazing performance.

October 8, 1948 - Frank “Trader” Lane is recruited out of the Big Ten Conference and takes over as the new General Manager of the White Sox. Lane would go on to become one of the greatest G.M.’s in team history. Among the players acquired by Lane, who made over 230 trades in his Sox tenure, were such future All Stars as Nellie Fox, Sherm Lollar, Billy Pierce, “Chico” Carrasquel and “Minnie” Minoso. Lane built the club that would go on to win the pennant in 1959.

In the ensuing rundown Vance Law is thrown out trying to score what would have been the go ahead run. The Sox wind up losing the game and the series on a home run by Tito Landrum in the 10th inning, the final score was 3 - 0, spoiling a masterful pitching performance by Sox pitcher Britt Burns.

October 9, 1993 - In Game #4 of the playoffs the Sox square the best of seven series at two games each with a 7 - 4 in Toronto. Tim Belcher who was acquired in a July trade gets the win in relief of Jason Bere. Unfortunately this is the last great moment for the "good guys who wear black" as Toronto closes out the series winning Game #5 in Toronto and Game #6 at Comiskey Park. A few years later Toronto manager Cito Gaston revealed that the Jays knew exactly what pitches were coming from both Sox aces Jack McDowell and Alex Fernandez something the Sox coaching staff never picked up on. In fact Toronto beat those pitchers four times while losing all the other games.

One of the most heads up baserunning plays in MLB playoff history. They still hate AJ in Anaheim because of it but it was Josh Paul's fault for not tagging him or throwing to the base.

Hemond sends John “Pineapple” Matias and (now) “Dr.” Gail Hopkins to the Royals for Don O’Riley and Pat Kelly. Kelly, who was the brother of Browns running back LeRoy Kelly, provides speed for the ‘new look’ White Sox. A solid hitter and lead off man, Pat would make the All Star Team in 1973.

After the game, owner Charles Comiskey hands a 15,000 dollar check to manager Fielder Jones. It’s to be split among the players. The players viewed the check as a bonus for their efforts. Comiskey considered it part of the 1907 salary! The seeds of the eventual “Black Sox” scandal were perhaps sown on this day. It’s the only time in over a century of playing baseball that the Sox and Cubs ever met in the postseason.

Tipton had gotten into a fistfight with Sox manager Jack Onslow during the 1949 season and wasn’t going to be kept. All Fox did was eventually get to the Hall of Fame, have his #2 retired by the team in 1976, make 12 All Star teams, win the league’s MVP award in 1959 and become the ‘face’ of the “Go-Go” Sox during the 1950's and early 1960's.
