Games and Moments

October 1,1970
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

Danny Murphy stood on the mound, having just come into the game in relief of pitcher Jim Magnuson. He leaned in and got his signal from catcher Chuck Brinkman. The batter, Mel Queen, an Angel relief pitcher being called on to pinch-hit, dug in and lifted his bat. The runners on 1st and 3rd both took a lead.

It was the bottom of the 13th of a 4-4 game. The smallish Anaheim...

Games and Moments

September 25,1970
vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at White Sox Park

History was made on this night during a doubleheader with the Brewers.

First, after winning the first game, the Sox lost the nightcap, 3-2. This dropped them to 56-100 and marked only the third time in franchise history that the team had hit the century mark in losses; the other seasons being 1932 and 1948.

Second, south side icon Luis Aparicio reached another...

vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park


Bill Melton may have had his comical misadventures afield, but he was proving himself to be a major league hitter. Coming off his rookie year, when he hit 23 home runs, Melt picked up where he left off and was belting them out of the park once again in 1970.

By August, it was apparent that he was on a pace to break the team home run record, set by Gus Zernial in...

Games and Moments

September 18,1970
vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The brand new manager of the Chicago White Sox strode into the visitors' clubhouse of Kansas City Municipal Stadium, looking resplendent in his grey road uniform, the first major league uniform he had worn in a while. Outside, the weather perfectly matched the mood of the clubhouse and the franchise in general-dark, gloomy and with a steady, continuous rain.

Games and Moments
The Rebuild Begins
September 1, 1970


All summer long Sox fans sent letters to the Tribune begging John Allyn to do something, anything, in order to whip the team into shape. Fire Gutteridge, fire Short; bring back Frank Lane, Eddie Stanky (they were both gainfully employed elsewhere by this time and may not have any desire to go back to the Sox, but no matter). Hire Billy Martin, whose firebrand style got the Twins to the playoffs in 1969 but later...
