When was the last time the Sox opened at home with a double header or there home opener was a double header?

The Sox opened the 1971 season with a scheduled double header at Oakland. it's the only time a scheduled DH has been played on opening day. Sox won both games 6-5 and 12-4.

The Sox opened the 1982 season on the road at N.Y. four days late because of a massive storm that hit the Midwest and East Coast. That turned out to be a DH because of trying to make up games. The Sox also won both on their way to starting the season at 8-0.

Thanks for the info Lip. I was looking through the Sox encyclopedia for that information but couldn't find it. Got any extra '69 or '70 media guides for sale or trade?

I think I remember one in '83. I'm probably wrong.
