Games and Moments
September 9, 1967
vs. Detroit Tigers
at White Sox Park

Yee-owwwwch. This one hurt. This one was epic. This was potentially crushing.

The Sox fall out of 1st on 9/7 when they are idle and both the Twins and Red Sox win that day.

The next day, the Tigers roll to town and keep the Sox down with a win. On Saturday the 9th the two teams meet in a nationally televised NBC Game of the Week.

The Sox score three runs...

Games and Moments
September 6, 1967
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

The White Sox appear to be falling out of the race as September begins. They are 1.5 games back but in 4th place. A 10-2 whomping at the hands of the Red Sox makes it 2.5, but Stanky's boys soldier on, winning 4 of 5 to creep within a game as they meet the Angels on this date.

Once again, the starting pitcher-in this case Joel Horlen-had to be protesting "What's a guy gotta...

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...
