"Every man's great moment on the White Sox comes when no one is watching"-Jean Shepard


Bill Melton may have had his comical misadventures afield, but he was proving himself to be a major league hitter. Coming off his rookie year, when he hit 23 home runs, Melt picked up where he left off and was belting them out of the park once again in 1970.

Games and Moments

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.

Games and Moments
The Rebuild Begins
September 1, 1970


All summer long Sox fans sent letters to the Tribune begging John Allyn to do something, anything, in order to whip the team into shape. Fire Gutteridge, fire Short; bring back Frank Lane, Eddie Stanky (they were both gainfully employed elsewhere by this time and may not have any desire to go back to the Sox, but no matter).

vs. Boston Red Sox
at White Sox Park

Games and Moments

August 19, 1970
vs. Boston Red Sox
at Fenway Park

The quaint internet phrase '***' was decades away from becoming a thing. However, I suspect that more than one fan of the 1970 Red Sox (and perhaps the players themselves) were shouting the full phrase that those initials stand for more than once while watching their team play the White Sox.

First, there was the 22-13 massacre at Fenway at the end of May. Boston rooters got a bit...
