Can anyone remember a White Sox minor league call up having the kind of impact game Brian Anderson had last night in Seattle? Frank had a big hit at Milwaukee right after he was called up in 1990...but can anyone think of of a better example? Especially in an pennant race?

Joe Crede was an excellent call up in 2002 - 58 G, 12 HR, 35 RBI, .285 BA, .515 Slg at the age of 24.

All joking aside, Anderson had a tremendous game last ngiht and I hope that it is the first of many. However, I'm going to wai a little while before annointing him as the next "Frank Thomas".

Maggs hit .319 with 4 HR and 11 RBI in 21 games in 1997.

I'm glad Anderson produced against such a highly touted pitcher last evening. He's really been thrown into the fire since his callup. Radke, Santana, Hernandez, Nathan, Romero, Mateo--hasn't had a break yet.

I remember a game winning slam to beat the Blow Jays at Comiskey
that August.It came,of course,AFTER the Sox were eliminated
by those damn Twinkies. :angry: :angry:

That hit was an RBI triple,IIRC, in game 1 of a 5 game
series (had to play a make up game).The Sox TOOK
ALL 5!!!!:nod: :nod:

Actually it was a late August Game -

August 27 to be exact. You are correct, however, about the fact that by then the Sox were 62-70 and "waiting til next year".

I thought this was a joke too, until I looked up Caruso's stats in 1998...

.306 with 22 SB's in 133 games....:o:

I dont remember that.....:?:

Then again, I was only 11, but still....For those of you who remember that year well, was Caruso looked upon as the future? I mean, he had to of been...

I seem to remember him being terrible on defense...Then he only hit .250 in '99, but I really dont remember him having that kind of a rookie season in 98

He finished second in ROY voting that year and was the cornerstone of the well-known Giants deal in 1997. He was supposed to be the future at SS, but he ended up being a complete tool and did nothing other than hit that homer off Aguilera in 1999.

Not actually a pennant race by any means, but I remember Russ Morman hitting two home runs in his big league debut vs. the Tigers in 1986... in the inning where he hit his first home run, he also batted a second time and got a single, joining Billy Martin as being only the second player to get two hits in an inning in his ML debut game.

Craig Wilson
BA: .468
OBP: .490
Slg: .766
HR: 3
AB: 47

That's the best in Sox history I think.

How can we forget Wilson Alvarez and his no-hitter during his first major league start?

Second, actually. He'd started a game for Texas 2 years earlier and not gotten anybody out.

Alex Fernandez was called up the same day as Frank in early August 1990. He had his moments the last two months and shored up the back end of the rotation.

I went to school and played little league and high school ball with craig. He was a grown man physically at the age of 12/13. He would pitch against us little kids and he would be throwing 70-75 mph and throwing curve balls. The guy threw a no hitter alomost everytime he pitched. And then when he was hitting...forget it....
