Posted 04-03-2012 at 04:57 AM by October26 (My White Sox Lunchbox)

[B][FONT=Verdana]This April, I am feeling nostalgic and sentimental as I realize that my daughter (April 3rd) and US Cellular Field (April 18th) will both celebrate their twenty-first birthdays.[/FONT][/B]

[B][FONT=Verdana]It has been twenty-one years since my husband and I eagerly awaited the arrival of our first child.[/FONT][/B][FONT=Verdana] It is hard to believe that our baby girl is now twenty-one years old. Time passes so quickly. Like most expectant mothers, I spent the weeks...

September 18,1970
vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The brand new manager of the Chicago White Sox strode into the visitors' clubhouse of Kansas City Municipal Stadium, looking resplendent in his grey road uniform, the first major league uniform he had worn in a while. Outside, the weather perfectly matched the mood of the clubhouse and the franchise in general-dark, gloomy and with a steady, continuous rain.
