June 16, 1997- After numerous charity and exhibition games, the Sox and Cubs play for real for the first time. The overall record through the end of the 2002 Spring training season has the Sox ahead 137-91-6 including an amazing 10-0-2 in the ‘Windy City Classic’ played for charity from 1985 through 1995 (there were two games in 1995.)

I was at this game, it was a night game and I've never seen so many fights in my life. Sox lost if I recall but it was interesting and entertaining.

That 6-16-97 game should have an asterisk, since Jaime Navarro was pitching.

I was there also and it was a day game.Navarro was the SP and the Sox lost. I think 7-4 but took the next two.
