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

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
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...

vs. Detroit Tigers
at Briggs Stadium

Tommy John was a bright spot for the White Sox during the dark turmoil of the 1968 season. The left hander, in his fourth season with the team, was having his best year by far. He jumped out of the gate by winning 7 straight without a loss, (including snapping the team's season-opening 10 game losing streak) and kept his ERA down below 2.0 for much of the season.

His 7-0 record and...

July 24, 1968
vs. Oakland A's
at White Sox Park

Al Lopez quickly became the calm aftermath of the storm that was Eddie Stanky. Coaches were moved back to their own dressing room, the petty fines stopped and the clubhouse media ban was lifted with the words "you boys are always welcome."

Then, more luck took over. Just 11 days into his second tenure as Sox pilot, Lopez was felled with an attack of appendicitis. Off to the hospital...

July 11,1968
vs. New York Yankees
at County Stadium, Milwaukee

Eddie Stanky continued to be the center of the s***storm that was the White Sox' 1968 season.

The skipper had rumored clashes with veterans Tommie Davis and Luis Aparicio; along with General Manager Ed Short. The GM objected to Stanky barring reporters from the clubhouse, with the two getting into an argument over it.

Stanky also barred his players from speaking...
