Games and Moments

Offseason, Part II

Walt Williams, the hustling Sox star of 1969 and the only player on both Chicago teams to hit over .300 (.304) that season, has a conversation with Jerome Holtzman of the Sun-Times. The writer asks Williams how much he is making. Williams tells him and Holtzman thinks he is kidding. He tells the outfielder to ask for as much as other .300 hitters are getting.

Williams, who made $12,000 in 1969, rejects the Sox offer of $14,000...

"I don't see any point in continuing to play there" Allyn said. He explained that the point of the games was to prove that the city could support a team. "However, there is nothing more to prove. Milwaukee is not going to get a team."

Games and Moments

October 2, 1969
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

A season of frustration comes to an end on this bright, sunny Thursday afternoon. The opponent is the Minnesota Twins, the newly-crowned American League Western Division champions, whose season will continue later in the week vs. the AL East champ Baltimore Orioles for the right to play in the World Series.
