September 27, 1959 - The Sox close their championship season with a 6 - 4 win at Detroit and when the final stats are in, second baseman Nellie Fox pulls off a rare feat. Fox winds up leading all American League second baseman in fielding percentage, put outs and assists.

September 27, 1963 - During the last double header at home for the season, the White Sox catch on to the folk music craze sweeping the nation. Between games against the Senators the Sox have a ‘hootenanny’ promotion where folks groups and singers hold a concert on the field.

September 27, 1967 - The Sox finish the season with the two worst teams in the league, Kansas City and Washington and the fans can smell that elusive World Series. However it all begins to fall apart as the Sox drop a double header to the A’s 5 - 2 and 4 - 0 after rain postponed the single game Tuesday night. The Sox, in the middle of a pennant race, get over three days off, not having played since Sunday afternoon in Cleveland. Gary Peters and Joe Horlen get tagged with the losses but the final embarrassment is yet to come. (Both Peters and Horlen talk about the 1967 season and the collapse the final week with White Sox Interactive in their interviews.)

September 27, 1993 - In front of a capacity crowd the Sox win the Western Division by beating Seattle 4 - 2. It’s Bo Jackson who clubs a towering three run blast that just drops over the wall in left that’s the difference in the game. The homer caps off an incredible comeback season for one of the finest natural athletes in history. Also in this game Sox starting pitcher Wilson Alvarez saw his streak of 30 consecutive shutout innings snapped when Seattle got to him for two runs in the 8th inning. The Sox win 94 games and take the title by eight games over Texas. (Jack McDowell, the Cy Young Award winner that season, talks about that year in his White Sox Interactive interview.)

September 27, 2003 - In one of the highest scoring games in their history, the Sox batter the Royals in Kansas City 19 - 3. Bartolo Colon wins this one easily. Joe Crede and Carl Everett both have four RBI’s in the game.
