September 12,1976
vs. California Angels
at Comiskey Park

September came and the White Sox looked well on their way to a losing season. Bill Veeck tried to keep things interesting and fun with his variety of promotions. He saved one of his favorites for after September 1, when teams were allowed to expand their rosters. Veeck announced that Minnie Minoso would be activated to put in a few appearances as a designated hitter.

Minnie had, in his day, been...

August 24,1976
vs. Detroit Tigers
at Tiger Stadium

The 1976 White Sox were a dull team, save for the occasional near no-hitter, ten game winning streak, game-winning home run or combined no-hitter. The game against the Tigers on this night was another one of those times that the Sox reached deep inside themselves and produced a classic.

Ken Brett took the mound that night for the Sox against Dave Roberts of the Tigers. The Sox gave Brett a 2-0 lead in...

"Too much of a good thing is simply wonderful"-Liberace

Well, maybe not, Lib. There are times when a good thing starts to run out of steam and overstays its welcome. Usually it happens by the third time around.

Movies are a perfectly good example of this. Look at some great movies that went one or more sequels too many. It is usually by the third installment that things go south. By...

The shorts were indeed back, along with a dog Frisbee catching contest before the game. One of the dogs ended her day in an unusual way. She dashed into right field and "tended to nature's...

August 14,1976
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Baltimore Memorial Stadium

The world is still recovering from the sight of a baseball team in shorts when the Sox go out to Baltimore for a four game weekend series. The Sox win the first game going into a Saturday doubleheader.

Game 1 appears to be no contest when the Orioles slam Sox pitcher Terry Forster for 8 runs; the big blows are a two run 1st inning home run by Reggie Jackson and a 2nd inning grand slam by...
