In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

April 24,1975
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The White Sox quickly started to live down to most people's expectations, stumbling out of the gate and unable to find the .500 mark. After 12 games they were 3-9 heading to Minnesota to meet the Twins. Before going there Terry Forster confidently predicted (for some reason) that the Sox would win 14 of the next 15 games. Maybe he saw something others didn't. The Sox did win a game after his prediction and were 4-9...

April 15,1975
vs. Texas Rangers
at White Sox Park

Turmoil reigned on the field and in the stands during the home opener.

The turmoil started at the end of spring training when Tony Muser, who was expecting to be the man at 1st base now that Dick Allen was gone, lost his job to Carlos May. An angry Muser blasted management and said he wanted to play or be traded. In a follow up story an unidentified player called Tanner a "phony." Tanner held a team...

April 8,1975
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The big question facing the Sox going into 1975 was if they would win without Dick Allen. Richard Dozer thought so-he picked the Sox to finish second. Bob Verdi wasn't as confident, he saw them dropping to fifth.

The Sox took the field for a night opener vs. the Oakland A's. Charlie Finley's team had beaten the Orioles in the 1974 ALCS, then dispatched the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games...

Dick Allen may have been gone, but he was determined to come back. He pleaded with Hemond to bring him back, even though he was the property of the Braves and the interleague trading deadline had passed. Allen desperately charged the White Sox with depriving him of making a living by trading him to a team that he did not want to play for. The players said they would gladly take him back if he apologized for walking out on them before the season was over.

Tanner and Hemond finally...

The White Sox had power enough to go around this season. They hit 135 home runs to lead the American league for the first time in their history. Dick Allen hit 32 to lead the team and league, his second AL Home Run Crown in three years, despite hitting his last home run on August 16 and playing his last game on September 8. Allen also sported 88 RBI and a .301 average.

Bill Melton overcame his midseason slump to hit 21 home runs and bat .242. Ken Henderson came back from his knee...
