Games and Moments

July 16,1971
vs. Washington Senators
at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium

The streaking Sox continue to play like a team on fire. They go into the All-Star break at 38-47 and are 16-9 since June 20.

Two Sox, Wilbur Wood and Bill Melton, are selected to be a part of the AL squad for that year's game in Detroit. Neither one plays in the game, though Wood is warming up in the 9th when the final out is made in the AL's 6-4 victory....

Games and Moments

July 3 & 4,1971
vs. Kansas City Royals
at Municipal Stadium, Kansas City


The White Sox play like a team on fire after their 18-8 thrashing of the Twins. That win kicked off a 6 game winning streak, followed by 4 losses to the Angels. But no matter. The promptly go out and win 6 straight again to go 12-4 in the 16 games since dropping to 22-38.

The last two of these wins are back-to-back 1-0 complete game shutouts over...

Games and Moments

June 20,1971
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The White Sox at this point of the season are slogging along in last place at 22-38, behind the pace of the 106 loss team of 1970. There are bright spots like the pitching of Wilbur Wood and Tom Bradley. The hitting is also improved, with Bill Melton leading the team with 12 home runs.

The defense still leaves a little to be desired, as the team makes youthful mistakes....

Games and Moments

June 10, 1971
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Cleveland Municipal Stadium

The White Sox have a proud tradition at the shortstop position, starting with Luke Appling, who made his debut in 1930 and held down the position until 1950, en route to the Hall of Fame.

He was succeeded by the fielding wizardry of Chico Carresquel, who held the position until Luis Aparicio arrived in 1956, and made dazzling plays and stole bases during two tenures...

Games and Moments

May 31,1971
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at White Sox Park


The White Sox continue to slog along in last place in the AL West. They can hit the ball, but fielding misadventures abound, led by Bee Bee Richard, who by this time has 15 errors and is being auditioned by Chuck Tanner in centerfield.

This Memorial Day double dip with the Orioles provided plenty of fireworks and entertainment. And there were two games played as well....
