"Too much of a good thing is simply wonderful"-Liberace

Well, maybe not, Lib. There are times when a good thing starts to run out of steam and overstays its welcome. Usually it happens by the third time around.

Movies are a perfectly good example of this. Look at some great movies that went one or more sequels too many. It is usually by the third installment that things go south. By...

The shorts were indeed back, along with a dog Frisbee catching contest before the game. One of the dogs ended her day in an unusual way. She dashed into right field and "tended to nature's...

vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Baltimore Memorial Stadium

The world is still recovering from the sight of a baseball team in shorts when the Sox go out to Baltimore for a four game weekend series. The Sox win the first game going into a Saturday doubleheader.

Game 1 appears to be no contest when the Orioles slam Sox pitcher Terry Forster for 8 runs; the big blows are a two run 1st inning home run by Reggie Jackson and a 2nd inning grand slam by...

vs. Kansas City Royals
at Comiskey Park

This is it, Sox fans! This was The Most Historic Day in baseball history. Forget Game 6 of the 1975 World Series.Forget Don Larsen's perfect game in the World Series. Forget Bobby Thompson's Shot Heard 'Round the World. Forget the world-destroying home run by Bucky Dent or the Bill Buckner error that caused misery, suffering and pain on a scale never before seen in world history. Forget Babe Ruth's 60th home run...

vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda Coliseum

By now, the Sox are in 5th place and heading nowhere in a hum-drum season. They dropped the first two games of this series with the A's going into the finale, when two pitchers managed to inject a little excitement into the woebegone season.

The starter for the evening's game was John "Blue Moon" Odom, former A's veteran and member of their three-time World Series winners, who had been acquired...
