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

April 8,1975
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The big question facing the Sox going into 1975 was if they would win without Dick Allen. Richard Dozer thought so-he picked the Sox to finish second. Bob Verdi wasn't as confident, he saw them dropping to fifth.

The Sox took the field for a night opener vs. the Oakland A's. Charlie Finley's team had beaten the Orioles in the 1974 ALCS, then dispatched the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games...

Dick Allen was determined to play for the White Sox in 1975. He pleaded with Hemond to bring him back, even though he was the property of the Braves and the interleague trading deadline had passed. In desperation Allen charged the White Sox with depriving him of making a living by trading him to a team for whom he did not want to play. The players said they would gladly take him back if he apologized for walking out on them before the season was over.

Tanner and Hemond finally agreed...

1974 offseason

The White Sox had power enough to go around this season. They hit 135 home runs to lead the American league for the first time in their history. Dick Allen hit 32 to lead the team and league, his second AL Home Run Crown in three years, despite hitting his last home run on August 16 and playing his last game on September 8. Allen also sported 88 RBI and a .301 average.

Bill Melton overcame his midseason slump to hit 21 home runs and bat .242. Ken Henderson came back from his knee...

October 2,1974
vs. Kansas City Royals
at White Sox Park

The White Sox close out their ho-hum season on a cold Wednesday afternoon in front of a smallish crowd of 1,969. Pride was the only thing at stake. The Sox went into the game at 79-80 and so needed a win to avoid a second straight season with a record below .500.

The Sox, for the most part, trotted out their A team, minus Bill Melton and Ed Herrmann. Bill Stein manned the hot corner for the Sox,...

September 26,1974
vs. Texas Rangers
at Arlington Stadium

Shortly after Dick Allen quits the team, Harry Caray infuriates Chuck Tanner by informing his viewers that the White Sox were better off now that Dick Allen was out of the picture. One thing he pointed out was that Allen made as many errors in the field-15, awful for a 1st baseman-as Bucky Dent had made at shortstop.

"You're gonna have a better team spirit" Caray told Tribune columnist...
