If you could pick a White Sox Turn Back The Clock game, for both the Sox uniform and visitors' uniform from the same year, what year and opponent would you choose?

My Choice: 1972 vs. Padres

The full database of uniforms is available at:

Next year Brooks Boyer and his staff figures to be VERY busy with these kind of things.

2007 is the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Near Miss White Sox.

2007 is the 35th anniversary of the 1972 Outhouse To Penthouse White Sox

2007 is the 30th anniversary of the 1977 South Side Hitmen White Sox

I fully expect to see three Turn Back The Clock Weekends.

What, if anything, did they do in 97 for the 20th anniversary of the South Side Hitmen?

Part of the reason for it was because despite the result, the 67 White Sox with a TEAM batting average of .241 scared the crap out of the big boys and played them right down to the final week.

They were much like the 1990 club that was picked for the second division (or last regarding 1990) yet shocked the baseball world.

They deserve to be remembered. (I don't see anyone objecting to the 1990 club... to many it's one of the 'best-loved' Sox teams...)

The other reason is that to our generation guys like Peters, Horlen, John, Wood, Locker, Ward, Buford etc. were heroes. Many of that club are still with us. It would be a real pleasure to see them out on the field again.

Cub-like has NOTHING to do with this. In 69 the Cubs were favorites and choked. The 67 White Sox were regarded as also-ran's and has been's. Didn't turn out that way did it.

Using some of your logic they we should celebrate ANYTHING but the 59 team and the 2005 club...I mean the 64, 72, 77 and 90 clubs didn't win squat either did they? The 83, 93 and 00 teams were immediately bounced out of the post season.

:?:

Kittle: They did nothing...nada,squat,zippo....another BRILLIANT move by Rob Gallas.

Sox since 70': One of the misconceptions is that Peters and Horlen didn't pitch well. I guess striking out 10 A's in a little over five innings by Gary doesn't count for much. You want to know why they lost? They had three days off from the time they were last on the field in Cleveland Sunday afternoon until they finally played Wednesday night, they made three errors in the DH leading to three or four unearned runs (very odd for them) and they didn't hit a damn thing.

Lip,
IMHO you are still missing my point, not to mention not answering my question. I mean no disrespect to the 1967 team. That's the first real pennant race I ever saw, and I credit that race in large part for tipping this impressionable youth to devote my passion to the South Siders. Horlen, Peters, TJ, No Neck, Pete Ward...those I the guys are first started paying attention to. My point remains, though: if they are primarily known for being a near-miss team, then there is nothing to celebrate. The Hit Men, on the other hand, are known primarily for launching HR's at a dizzying pace, not for where they finished, so if a celebration is in order, then celebrate the team.

But the overriding concern still not addressed - do TBTC have to celebrate an anniversary of something now?

That's just the name that I give that team to summerize the season. "Officially" I don't know if anything exist.

No... the Sox don't HAVE to do a damn thing. But Brooks isn't stupid. He knows how much Sox fans have enjoyed these in the past. I'll stake a decent sum on the fact that next season you'll see at least one of these clubs honored.

And, as stated, if nothing else, these guys deserve a chance to get back down on the field and have the applause of Sox fans cascade down on them (while they are still with us...)

If that's the ONLY they did, that's terrible. That 83 team is remembered by many fans and as the first time to win anything since 59, the Sox need to do something for their 20th. Though if they plan a huge celebration for the 25th anni. then that would make up for it.

I was at the original Turn Back The Clock Day in MLB history:

July 11, 1990...The White Sox celebrate "Turn Back the Clock Day" at Comiskey Park in honor of the 1917 World Series Champion White Sox.

Fisk caught, Comiskey Park was nearly sold out and the 9 inning game nearly took 5 hours.
You mean Fisk caught a 5-hour game? You're kidding!

LOL, I love the guy, but he was slowest-working catcher I've ever seen in my 26+ years. Can you imagine him catching Buehrle? :rolling:

I remember staying till the 9th inning, driving home and watching the end of the 1990 TBTC game on TV. Still enjoy the video in my collection. The Sox did a late '90s game with the 67 uni's already. I don't think we have had the red '70s uniforms as a TBTC game yet . Bobby Jenks could do a Wibur Wood look in those.....:D:


Also I have never found any Frank Thomas photos of him in those mid 60's uniforms.......:(: .?

Bob:

Are you sure about the 67 Turn Back The Clock? I've never heard of this before...any specific information that you can share would be appreciated. Perhaps I can use it to research further.

83 Sox vs 81 Astros (http://www.baseballhalloffame.org/exhibits/online_exhibits/dressed_to_the_nines/detail_page.asp?fileName=nl_1981_houston.gif&Entryid=1432).

I agree. I think the Sox and Stos missed a "great" opportunity last World Series to showcase the ugliest uniforms in history. I know MLB would never approve such an idea, nor would I really want that to happen, however it would have been funny.

Both teams, with numbers on their pants..... :D:

I like those but only as a novelty. I wouldn't want them to be our everyday uniforms!

So I guess in the future, we all lose our fashion sense.

Well we get to sorta see that this sunday with the throwbacks, but I guarantee that matchup was much more balanced compared to the lopsided one we'll see.
