I'm not sure what the signifigance of this game is. I don't get ESPN Classic, but a buddy called and told me the game was on. He was telling me who some of the guys on the field for the Sox were (Fletcher, Ozzie, Frank, etc). He said the right fielder (Sammy?) looked like El DeBarge. Who is playing left field in this game? Calderon?

Wasn't that the play in the RF corner with Tom Brunansky, if I remember correctly?

ESPN classic never shows "good" Sox games. It always involves us losing in some way. However, they are currenty airing game #4 of the 1984 NLCS between the Cubs and Padres. For those too young to remember, Steve Garvey bombs Lee Smith in the bottom of the 9th to force a game 5.

I was watching that too. Of course it really didn't matter. No one was going to beat the Tigers that year. My how things have changed.

I have only seen the '93 clincher game from your llist, but they have also played one of the Sox/Cubs games from 2000 when the Sox won in 14 innings I believe. Frank hits a MONSTER home run off of Jon Lieber, Sosa ties it up in the 9th with a homer off Foulke, than Durham knock in Perry(I think) to win, it could be 't'other way round' with Perry knocking in Durham

Durham knocked in Perry.

Lip, do you have copies of the '81 game or the '83 clincher?

Lip, are you sure about that? I remember it as being Ray-Ray sliding into home to score the winning run.

Around the time Clemens was approaching #300, ESPN Classic also showed Tom Seaver's win #300, White Sox win vs. the New York Yankees in '85.

Yes but they have also shown:

1996 season opener vs. The M's. Sox lost that one

I have also seen the "Turn Back The Clock" 1990 game vs. The Brewers at Old Comiskey. Sox lost that one as well, but at least you get to see the Old Park again.

There is also a 1997 game between our Sox and Orioles in Camden Yards. I have no idea why they chose that game. But you get to see Jaime Navarro pitch and Terry Bevington managing (shivering)

In that Orioles game the Sox blew an eight run lead but wound up winning I think 11-9.

I only posted because an individual stated that ESPN only shows the Sox when they lose.

This obviously is not the case and I wanted to stop the "conspiracy" theory before it got out of hand.

100% positive Durham knocked in Perry. I'll try to look up an old game recap later. Just think about it though...Durham was the leadoff hitter, and Perry batted 7th. Wouldn't it be easier for Perry to be on base with Durham at the plate than vice versa?
