Hello White Sox fans,
My name is Tony Pente and I run the website OriolesHangout.com. This site and I use to be Rivals.com sites and it was the first place I thought of when I needed White Sox information. where else but the best White sox fan site out there?

I'm putting together a recap of the Orioles 1979 opening day game against the White sox and I'm doing it sorta like you are listening back in 1979, with flash forwards to the present.

The first guy I was doing background stuff on was Chappas and I had a few questions.

1) Why was Chappas removed as the starting shortstop in 1979 and replaced with Pryor? Was he sent to the minors, was it an injury?
2) Anybody know what he does now?
3) Was his career really cut short (sorry for the pun) due to his problems dealing with people b ecause of his lack of size (this was insinuated in a Freddie Patek article i read that mentioned Chappas).

Thanks in advance and I'll be dropping by with questions in otehrs if you don't mind as well.
