September 4,1977
vs. Baltimore Orioles
at Comiskey Park

The Sox kicked off September with a three game set vs. the Orioles, who were fighting for their own lives in the AL East. They were falling behind the Yankees, who were blistering hot since August 1. The White Sox needed the series to keep pace with the Royals, who were showing no signs of slowing down.

The teams met for a rubber game on Sunday having split the first two games. 48,952 fans, the...

August 30,1977
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Cleveland Stadium

The Sox go into their last game of August hoping to salvage something from their first losing month of the season.

Sox rookie Ken Kravec, who took the mound on this night, was one of the guys in a slump. He was riding high with a 7-2 record when he lost four straight during the month.

His mound opponent would be Wayne Garland, former Orioles pitcher whom Cleveland management had...

August 29,1977
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Cleveland Stadium

Every once in a while a player hits a home run of such significance that it immediately becomes bigger than the game and passes into legend, destined to be forever celebrated in prose and song. The home run immortalizes not only the batter who hit it, but the pitcher who gave it up. The two are joined together forever, linked by that one moment in time. Babe Ruth and Charlie Root. Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca....

August 22,1977
vs. New York Yankees
at Comiskey Park

The White Sox return to Chicago in 2nd place, but only 1 game behind the Royals. The month of August has not been very kind to them thus far-they are 6-14 going into a two game series with the Yankees, against whom they are only 2-6 on the year.

Sox fans still had hope. 45,443, the second largest crowd of the year, turned out for this one. The Yankees were red hot-72-50, 1/2 game out of 1st and bearing...

August 20,1977
vs. Milwaukee Brewers
at Milwaukee County Stadium

The Sox were in desperate need of pitching, so Bill Veeck and Roland Hemond went shopping around for someone to join the staff. They soon found a willing trade partner in...the Chicago Cubs?

Yes, it was true. John "No Way" Holland had stepped down from the position of Cubs General Manager in 1975. In his chair now sat 57 year old Chicago-born baseball lifer Bob Kennedy. Unlike...
