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

Games and Moments:

April 13, 1967
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

The White Sox are 0-1 going into this game, having lost the opener to Boston in front of 8,000 Fenway partisans.

Today looks like more of the same as Boston enters the top of the 9th winning 5-4. But in what would be the first of many thrillers for the 67ers, the Sox of White rise up and score 5 unearned runs. They are aided and abetted by the Boston defense, which commits...

Game of the Year 1977
July 31 vs. Kansas City Royals (1st Game of DH)
at Comiskey Park

The story of the 1977 White Sox, indeed the White Sox of the Bill Veeck era was written on December 16, 1975, a mere six days after Veeck's 11th hour purchase of the White Sox was finalized.

On that day an arbiter named Peter Seitz ruled that three players-Andy Messersmith, Dave McNally and Mike Cuellar-had played out their options with their teams and were free to...

Game of the Year, 1976
April 9 vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

The White Sox ended the 1975 season on so many down notes that the team must've lost all sight of which way was up. Attendance had fallen below 800,000, the final record of 75-86 was good for 5th place, the team was for sale, owner John Allyn was so broke he nearly didn't meet his payroll and to top it all off, the team was in danger of being sold to a syndicate that would move the club to Seattle...

Game of the Year 1975

Game of the Year, 1975
September 28 vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

Dick Allen never submitted a formal retirement letter to the White Sox or MLB, so the team put him on the ineligible list (disqualifying him from playing for 60 days, retroactive to his September 14 retirement) then traded him to the Braves. Allen found out about the deal and tried to come back for the Sox, but Roland Hemond told him no dice. The biggest Sox star of the decade was gone....

Game of the Year, 1974
August 7 vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

If one need was painfully clear to the White Sox after 1973, it was pitching. Wilbur Wood and Stan Bahnsen shouldered most of the load, starting on two days' rest most of time. As a result, they both lost 20 games. Bart Johnson had an erratic, injury-plagued year. Young Steve Stone, acquired from San Francisco in the Henderson deal, went 6-11 with a 4.24 ERA. Terry Forster bounced between the starting...
