April 27,1974

April 27,1974
vs. Detroit Tigers
at White Sox Park

Just when the Sox thought it was safe to put the embarrassment of streakers and strippers that was Opening Day behind them...

It was Seat Cushion Night at White Sox Park, with the first 20,000 fans receiving a flat, seat-sized cushion with the White Sox insignia on it for those times when they encountered an uncomfortable wooden or metal chair. They could simply put the cushion on the seat to prevent having...

April 16,1974
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda Coliseum

The White Sox stumble out of the gate after opening day, losing their next four to drop to 0-5. Interspersed with the losses are two ties, one with the Angels which called after 10 innings due to temps in the 30s, a 22 mile an hour wind and a snowfall which made it hard for the players to see the ball.

Wilbur Wood brought the streak to a halt on the 13th, but the determined Sox started a new one...

April 5,1974
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

Chuck's charges broke camp at the end of March with the skipper overflowing with his usual optimism. Tanner called the 1974 edition of the White Sox the best-balanced team he had since he had come to Chicago. He went so far as to say that it was the strongest team in club history.

Robert Markus wasn't feeling Tanner's optimism. Not only did he pick the Sox to finish third, he wasn't too hopeful about...

1973 Offseason Pt. 2

Posted 12-11-2017 at 07:29 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)
Updated 03-24-2018 at 08:11 AM by TommyJohn

The 1973 White Sox may not have been a success on the field, but they were at the gate. Buoyed by preseason expectations and the fast 27-15 start, the Sox' final attendance for the season came to 1,302,527, their highest total since they last defended the AL pennant in 1960. They also had increased attendance four years running for the first time since 1942-45. It was also 807,172 more than the woebegone 1970 team had drawn. AT the very least they seemed to be on doing well in terms of drawing fans...

1973 Offseason

Posted 12-11-2017 at 07:28 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

1973 Offseason

The 1973 season was supposed to be the one where the Chicago White Sox were to rise fully triumphant from the near-franchise destroying debacle of 1968-70, most especially 1970's 56-106 mark. Instead, they took an injury-riddled step back in a season that exposed many of the team's weaknesses-lack of pitching, lack of depth, lack of money to properly pay its players. And now, in this offseason, they were about to become part of a soap opera plotline that began to develop...
