The season is over, let the off season begin!

October 1, 1950 - Luke Appling gets his final hit in a White Sox uniform. The future Hall Of Famer spends twenty years and 2,422 games in a Sox uniform. He’d later come back as a coach for the club in 1970 and 1971.

October 1, 1959- After 40 years, the wait is over and the Sox are in the World Series facing the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Sox react in Game #1 like they are trying to win the title in a single game, burying L.A. 11 - 0. Ted Kluszewski slams a pair of home runs and ties a series record with five RBI’s. The Sox assault Dodger starter Roger Craig early and often to give Cy Young award winner Early Wynn a lot of breathing room.

October 1, 1975 - Owner John Allyn appears on Johnny Morris’ sports on WBBM-TV. While talking about the pending sale of the club he says if he does own the team in 1976, Harry Caray won’t be back as lead announcer. Allyn is tired of Caray and wants to fire him. The next day Caray has this retort, "I can’t believe any man can own a ballclub and be as dumb as John Allyn. Did he make enough to own it or did he inherit it?"
