Offseason

56-106
495,355

79-83
833,891

The contrast between the 1970 and 1971 versions of the White Sox was like night and day. Roland Hemond and Chuck Tanner were showered with praise for the way they had rebuilt the team almost overnight. A lot of the positive press came from the Chicago media, which had seemingly abandoned the team to the fates long ago.

There was still work to be done, however. The Sox showed great offense, belting...

Games and Moments

September 30,1971
vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at White Sox Park

In 1970, Bill Melton had shattered the 30 home run glass ceiling, becoming the first Sox player to achieve that total in one season, finally ending the lost season with a new team record 33.

The next year Melton was hardly content to rest on that laurel. He had another ceiling to break through-in the first 70 years of the American League, not one White Sox player had ever...

Games and Moments

September 21,1971
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

For the third time this season and for the second time against Oakland, the White Sox were involved in a bench-clearing altercation. And for the third time this season, one Clair Barth Johnson, AKA The Notorious B.A.R.T. was at the center of it. Are you starting to sense a pattern here?

The A's came back to Oakland in triumphant fashion, having clinched the AL...

Games and Moments

September 17 & 18,1971
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

The White Sox go into this weekend series with the Angels long eliminated from contention in the AL West. At this point they are playing for pride, trying to improve on 1970 as much as possible. There is also the possibility of finishing as high as 3rd place.

Bart Johnson takes the mound on Friday night and runs into trouble early. He gives up 3 Angel runs in the...

Games and Moments

September 12, 1971
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City

The White Sox continue to play good baseball as August rolls along. On the 15th they defeat the Orioles 2-1 to bring their record to 57-63. It wasn't a momentous game in the history of the franchise, but it was noteworthy for one reason-with the win, Chuck's charges surpassed their win total for all of 1970. They accomplished this with 42 games left in the season....
