September...the month for champagne celebrations and crying in your beer. The end of the regular season and in some cases the start of a new beginning in October. Let's hope for the Sox, a strong September will mean back to back post season spots for the first time in franchise history.

This month you'll find those 'clinching' memories, the time a fan took matters into his own hands with Sammy Esposito, the final days of the original (never duplicated) Comiskey Park, the beginning of the end for broadcaster Jimmy Piersall, the disastrous finish to the 1967 season and a day former manager Terry Bevington will never forget.

September 1, 1998 - Albert Belle hits his 42nd home run of the season in Baltimore. In the same game he gets his 337th total base of the season. Both milestones set the franchise record in their respective categories in the Sox 9 - 5 win.

the whole second half was unbelievable for the '83 team...as pitchers one after another were lights out

...by the way, I just noticed that the Sox have had 10 playoff contending seasons in the last 40 years. An average of once every 4 years.

The only team of the 10 listed that was more than 2 games out of a playoff spot on Sept. 1 was the 1990 team. But I included them because they were a damn good team, won 94 games, and finished 7 games better than the AL East winner.
