June 28,1973
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

"These are the times that try men's souls..."

It is at this point of writing about the 1973 season that I feel I should be like some "long-suffering" fans of teams that have gone oh, so long without winning it all and have suffered the cruel miseries and caprices of fate along the way. I want to look to the sky and wonder if there is a sentient being out there, in the many-starred cosmos,...

June 21,1973
vs. Oakland A's
at White Sox Park

Stan Bahnsen went into June still unsigned. He wanted a raise of $8,000 after winning 21 games in 1972. Stu Holcomb was offering a $5,000 raise and not budging. It was with the two sides at an impasse that Bahnsen's stress-filled season was compounded by personal tragedy.

At the begining of June Bahnsen's father suffered a stroke and wasn't expected to live. The hurler was granted an emergency leave of absence,...

"Here is wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the Beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666." -Revelation 13:18 (New International Version)

Pretty frightening, eh? One of the scariest verses in one of the scariest chapters of the Bible. It describes a time in which a huge beast will emerge from the sea to wreak terror, horror, and misery on...

May 31,1973
vs. Detroit Tigers
at White Sox Park

Jorge Orta was added to the list of Sox players with aches and pains as he nursed a sore leg. Carlos May still had his achy thigh and Henderson was on the shelf. An event that happened this night typified the luck that was starting to bedevil the team.

It started out innocently enough. The Sox teed off on Tiger starter Jim Perry, whacking him for seven runs in the first three innings of the contest. Rookie outfielder...

May 28, 1973
vs. Cleveland Indians
at White Sox Park

It was late May, the Sox were in 1st place, winning and showing no signs of letting up. Sure, there were still salary dramas going on behind the scenes. You wouldn't know it by the way they were playing. They appeared to be one, big happy family. All was right with the world.

But small cracks began to develop. Carlos May strained his thigh and was assigned the DH position for a few days. A worse injury occurred...
