I was at my 1st Sox game of the year last night (1 of many I might add) and noticed the new Sox video on the screen before the start of the game.

It brought back lots of fond memories for me. From the Richie (Dick) Allen Sox to the Winnin' Ugly team of the 80s to the Julio Cruz game winning run to clinch the division to Black Jack's Sizzlin' Sox to our current Ozzie Ball White Sox.

One thing tho...I remember seeing the game where Carlton Fisk tagged out 2 players at home on the same play. What i dont remember is who the 2 players were...

Anybody know?
Thanks...

I don't know who the 2 players are but I love the video. Great pregame intro, but nothing will ever be able to top the bulls intro.

I believe they were Yankees. I think Dale Berra was the second guy tagged out.

I love that video they show just prior to the start of the game. I remember a few years ago at the White Sox Official Website you could watch the clip of the HR through the Century on your computer.

I hope they upload it to their current website, I'd like to watch that thing on demand whenever I want. It's really great, and whoever put it together deserves a great big White Sox High Five!!! :smile:

I love all of the lesser-known highlights in that video. Joe Cowley's no-hitter, a shot of Disco Demolition, LaRussa throwing 3rd base past the ump ('83), Frank lifting up Robin 7/31/91. It's really like a who's who compilation of the last 30 years. The guys who put that together did a great job.

There don't seem to be any Ed Farmer highlights, unlike the old video, but DJ has a lot of time near the end.

It is nonetheless exceptionally well-done, and a lot more action-packed than the old ones. It is set to the music very well.

I wasn't around for most of what they show, but it gives me chills anyway.

The 'two for the price of one' play occured the same weekend that would see Tom Seaver win his 300th game in New York.

Ask and ye shall receive:

August 2, 1985- An incredible weekend in New York starts with perhaps the most unusual play in White Sox history. With Britt Burns on the mound, Rickey Henderson slams a double to left center over the head of Luis Salazar. Yankee base runners Bobby Meacham and Dale Berra get confused because it looked like Salazar might have been able to make the catch. Meacham stumbles running the bases and is nearly passed by Berra. Both runners get hung up and attempt to score as Salazarís relay throw is caught by Ozzie Guillen and fired to Carlton Fisk at the plate. Fisk then tags out and knocks down BOTH Meacham and Berra one / two as they attempt to score. Thatís two for the price of one at home plate! To cap things off the Sox win the game 6-5 in 11 innings plus the game was on national television as NBC was showing it on their 'Friday Night Baseball' series with Vin Scully doing the play by play.

When I'm at the game, and that video comes on, I get tunnel vision. Everything else ceases to exist for those few moments as I stand and stare, riveted to the screen. My wife has tried to get my attention, the people behind me have asked me to sit down, but I don't hear or see anything except that awesome music and those incredible highlights. I'd love for the Sox to offer a download or even a DVD of that piece. Maybe I'll e-mail Brooks!

I love the new video, it shows the great and not so great moments of our history in 60 seconds or so.

You sound like me! I have been to the park 5 times this year and have gotten chills each time I watched it.The music is perfect,and combined with Thunderstruck gets you even more pumped up to watch the game.

No knock on this year's montague...I just liked last year's a bit better, where they showed icons of players in Sox past and present...It seemed to pump me up a little more, especially with the soundtrack they did it to.

What's a montague? Sounds like a style of necktie.

Don't you mean montage?

Yup...I'm such a bad speller...That's why I use spell checker all the time...It's also why I'm a math teacher, not an english teacher. :D:

I believe a Montague is a member of a family from a work of Shakespeare. Romeo & Juliet IIRC:wink:

I can still hear Vin proclaiming, "they get one, and they get two!" :D:

Just having a little innocent fun at your expense. Congrats on being a teacher, you bear the cross of being in the most underpaid and underappreciated group of people I know.

GO SOX!

Romeo is a Montague. Juliet is a Capulet.

There is also an umpire named Ed Montague. Not sure if he is related to Romeo :smile:

This sucks. Thursday was my first day. We were in sect. 100, so the Jumbotron and Matrix board were blocked off by the wallls from the fan deck. I was looking forward to seeing the new intro.
