Games and Moments August 27, 1967, Part II

Posted 02-18-2017 at 01:10 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

August 27, 1967 Part II-Not everybody was happy with Springstead's call on the play that ended Game 1 of the double header. Both Ken Berry and Eddie Stanky vigorously argued the call, with Stanky bumping the ump a few times before the argument was done. Springstead couldn't eject either guy, though, as the game was over.

They weren't the only duo in the park mad enough to confront the ump. During the second game two fans ran out to Springstead, now at third base, and exchanged angry...

Games and Moments

August 27, 1967
vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

The surprising Red Sox, 9th place finishers in 1966, come to Chi for a 5 game series all but tied for 1st with the White Sox and with the city of Boston practically hysterical with pennant fever. Boston took 2 of 3 going into this Sunday double header.

Game 1 featured an ending that is still well-remembered and celebrated in Boston sports lore as "The Throw."

Games and Moments
August 13, 1967
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The White Sox are evicted from the top spot in the American League on this day, courtesy of a three game sweep handed to them by the Twins. A 3-2 defeat in this game completes Minny's trifecta.

This game was marked by a close play in the top of the 9th, with the Twins leading by the 3-2 score. Tommie Agee, who had homered earlier in the game, led off with a scorching extra base...

Games and Moments
July 31, 1967
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Municipal Stadium, Cleveland

The White Sox go into this contest in 1st place, two games up on the competition.

Rocky Colavito, acquired in a trade from the very same Indians two days earlier, is the star of this game. The Sox and Indians are tied at 2 going into the 10th inning when Wayne Causey singles and Tom McCraw grounds into a fielder's choice. Colavito steps up to the plate and touches ex-teammate...

Games and Moments
July 25, 1967
vs. Cleveland Indians (double header)
at White Sox Park

The White Sox of 1967 might not have been an offensive juggernaut (.225 average, 89 HRs as a team) but they weren't without their moments, like this beautiful July Sunday double header vs. the Indians at White Sox Park. They would sweep the Indians in dramatic fashion, with a home run in their final at-bat of both games.

Game 1-Sox enter the bottom of the 9th tied at...
