Happy Anniversary Joe!!!

September 10, 1930 - Future Hall Of Famer Luke Appling makes his White Sox debut. It was the start of the legacy of great Sox shortstops which included "Chico" Carrasquel, Luis Aparicio and Ozzie Guillen.

September 10, 1954 - Paul Richards, one of the greatest managers in club history, resigns to accept a duel position of general and field manager for the Baltimore Orioles. Richards is the man credited with turning around the fortunes of the franchise in 1951 with his aggressive running philosophy.

September 10, 1967- Coming off two straight losses to the Tigers and in danger of falling out of the pennant race, Joe Horlen throws a no hitter. Almost 24,000 Sox fans see Horlen win 6 - 0. Sox 2nd baseman Wayne Causey saves the no hitter with a grab of a smash off the bat of Jerry Lumpe in the 9th inning. His throw just nips him at the bag. Rookie Cisco Carlos then shuts out Detroit in the second game vaulting the Sox right back into pennant contention. Itís the last time in team history that the Sox would throw shutouts in a double header. (Horlen talks about his no hitter in his interview with White Sox Interactive.)

A memory seared in my mind. Horlen was dominant all season. The ending wasn't to good. A pennant race lost.

That 1967 staff has to be one of the greatest Sox staffs ever. Put two real good hitters on that team and it would have been a World Series champion. The wheels totally fell off when the team lost the first 10 games of '68. '67 was still a great season. In my mind greater than the '69 Cubs though we never stop hearing about those choke artists.

That was the last Sox no-hitter ever at Old Comiskey Park and, to this day, still stands as the last Sox no-hitter at home.

I give this post a hell ya. The 67 Sox did more with less and 69 cubs did the opposite. Sox fans could take some consolation in the fact that JC Martin, Tommie Agee and Al Weis, all members of the 67 team, got a WS ring with the 69 Mets. The late 60s was a dark time for Sox fans, and solace of any kind was hard to find.
