November 11, 1965 - ‘The Senor,’ manager Al Lopez, resigns his position with the White Sox. Perhaps the greatest manager in franchise history, Lopez has nine winning seasons in his nine full time years as field manager. He wins the 1959 American League pennant and was coming off of back to back to back 90 or more win seasons in 1963, 1964 and 1965. His 840 wins is second most in team history. He would return to manage a few games in 1968 and 1969 but this was his last full season.(Many of Lopez’ players including J.C. Martin, Ray Herbert, Gary Peters, Joe Horlen and Ken Berry talk about playing for him in their interviews with White Sox Interactive.)
