July 31,1977
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

The Sox and Royals concluded their big series with a Sunday doubleheader. 50,412 screaming, singing, joyous fans turned out for this one, the Sox' first gate of 50,000 plus since 1973. They witnessed one of the great classics in White Sox history in the first game, followed by a Royal blast in game 2. After the games, the Royals, two players specifically, let loose.

At around this time another growing Comiskey...

vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

Game 2 of the big showdown with the Royals was very much like the first. A large crowd of 34,945 turned out, turned on and remained on 11 throughout. "Once again, chairs were optional" wrote Bob Verdi in his game summary.

The Royals once again did not take long at all to take charge of the proceedings. George Brett led the game off by torching starter Francisco Barrios for a home run, and...

vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

The Sox came home and ran their winning streak to six with a win over Detroit on the 26th. The Tigers snapped it the next day, leaving the Sox up by four games going into a four game weekend showdown with the second place Royals. The series saw a level of crowd noise, fan emotion and good times not seen on the south side since, well, the beginning of the month.

45,919 jammed the ballyard for the...

vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

By the time the All-Star break came around, the White Sox had taken the baseball world completely by storm. Just who were these guys? The new power structure in baseball was supposed to make the rich teams richer and the poor teams S.O.L. The George Steinbrenners and Gene Autrys of the game were going to gobble up all the best players and turn out instant contenders that would leave all other teams in the dust. But here...

The city of Chicago woke up on the morning of the Fourth of July to find both the White Sox and Cubs in 1st place. Although both teams had been in first earlier in June, this was the first time since 1967 that both Chicago teams sat atop their league/division this late in the season. Fans on both sides would normally react to this by rooting hard for their team while simultaneously fretting that they would blow it while the...
