In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

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."

The White Sox went into...

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 hit. The Sox speedster...

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 Luis Tiant for...

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 1-1, with "Sudden"...

June 15, 1967
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

Ouch. This one hurts. The 1st place White Sox meet the 3rd place Red Sox in the last of a three game series having split the first two games.

Bruce Howard goes for the Sox and pitches 7 scoreless innings and Hoyt Wilhelm follows it up with two. In true 1967 Sox fashion, they are unable to score as John Waslewski of Boston throws a nine inning shutout with nothing to show for it.

The White Sox finally...
