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

Games and Moments
April 11, 1969
vs. Seattle Pilots
at Sick's Stadium

Major League baseball expanded in 1968, voting to add two new teams to each league, starting in 1969. The National League got new franchises in San Diego and Montreal (nosing out a bid for a new Milwaukee team by used car salesman Allen H. "The Outsider" Selig) and the American League got new teams in Kansas City and Seattle.

The expansion was done thanks in part to Missouri...

Games and Moments
April 9, 1969
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The Sox take the field for the second game of the 1969 season after having lost 5-2 on Opening Day.

Tommy John takes the mound for his first start since issuing the fateful base on balls to Dick McAuliffe the previous August. John had sustained a torn ligament in the brawl, but refused to undergo surgery for it, perhaps fearing that further damage might be done.

Games and Moments

September 29, 1968
vs. California Angels
at Anaheim Stadium

The psychotic 1968 season mercifully draws to a close on this autumn Sunday.

They manage to end it with a bit of flair. The Sox trail 5-4 going into the top of the 9th. After Dick Kenworthy flies out to open the frame, three straight singles by Buddy Bradford, rookie Carlos May (a September call up who had debuted on the 6th) and veteran Leon Wagner tie the score. Gerry...

Games and Moments September 2 & 3, 1968

Games and Moments
September 2 & 3, 1968
vs. Washington Senators
at. D.C. Stadium

At first glance, these two games with the Senators, both of which the Sox lost. seem like garden variety 1968 games. In the first one, they were blown out 11-3. In the second, Cisco Carlos did not get any run support in a 2-1 loss.

What made these losses big was that they were the team's 81st and 82nd losses of the season, thus ensuring that they would finish below .500...

Tommy Davis

Tommy Davis was one of the star outfielders of the National league in the 1960s. He broke in with one AB for the 1959 Dodgers, then stuck with them the next year, becoming one of the main cogs in their contending teams.

In 1962, Davis led the NL with 153 RBI and won the batting title with an average of .346. The next year he won the NL batting title again with an average of .326. In 1965 he suffered a badly broken ankle sliding in to a base....
