June 4,1974
vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

Chuck Tanner decided a shake-up was in order. He benched Ron Santo, who was hitting .236 with one AL home run, demoted Jim Kaat, who had lost his last five games (prompting Harry Caray's "maybe it's time to retire" crack) to the bullpen, promoted Skip Pitlock to the rotation and called up Bill Sharp, who was hitting .380, from Iowa.

The stars of this game were two standbys that Tanner needn't...

vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

In 1980, while giving an interview to Tribune writer Bob Vanderberg, then-Pittsburgh Pirates manager Chuck Tanner remembered this game. Sort of...

"I got to the ballpark early" Tanner told Vanderberg. "And Danny Murtaugh, who was scouting for the Pirates, was telling me 'How can you guys be fighting for a pennant? You don't have any speed, the defense is poor.' I said 'Don't tell the ballplayers...

vs. Minnesota Twins
at White Sox Park

The Sox keep winning more than they lose and at one point grab a share of 1st place.

They are 15-14 going into this game against the Twins in front of a small crowd at White Sox Park. "Stanley Struggle" Bahnsen took the mound and pitched one of the best games of his career.

Stan showed absolutely no signs of struggle this night. He finished off the Twins 1-2-3 for seven innings....

May 7,1974
vs. Detroit Tigers
at Tiger Stadium

Wilbur Wood continues to show that he is one of the best, most durable pitchers in the game this night, delivering another brilliant performance.

This was done through the "miracle" of videotape, as George Langford wrote in his game account. John Allyn started recording White Sox games for the players to study later. It was while watching one of his games from earlier in the year that Wood said he...

vs. Detroit Tigers
at White Sox Park

Just when the Sox thought it was safe to put the embarrassment of streakers and strippers that was Opening Day behind them...

It was Seat Cushion Night at White Sox Park, with the first 20,000 fans receiving a flat, seat-sized cushion with the White Sox insignia on it for those times when they encountered an uncomfortable wooden or metal chair. They could simply put the cushion on the seat to prevent having...
