Cubs, Sox battle continues

Chicago, June 1969

by Joe Dick
Trib Reporter

Chicago's North-South Civil War continued today as the first place Cubs hooked up with the fifth place Sox in the second game of this three game set, played in front of yet another near-capacity crowd packing the South Side ballyard to the rafters. Today's duel featured a battle of lefthanders with Ken Holtzman of the Cubs bumping up against Tommy John of the White Sox.

Cubs, Sox inaugurate "interleague play" at Comiskey

CHICAGO-June, 1969

By Joe Dick
Trib Reporter

Chicago's two baseball titans today met at Comiskey for the first of a three game showdown to kick off "interleague play," a brand new concept introduced to baseball this year by the powers-that-be in an effort to increase attendance and take some of the spotlight away from Joe Namath and the boys on the gridiron.

1964 and 1969 APBA

Posted 06-27-2009 at 10:12 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

My 1964 and 1969 seasons arrived in the mail today. Now I am whracking my brain
for potential matchups. Who to pit against who? The possiblities are endless. Of course, my "Close Call World Series" between the 1964 White Sox and 1969 Cubs will go on as planned. I'd like to do a couple of games before that.

I was going through the cards, putting them in their individual team envelopes (they came separate) and seeing names of guys who became even more famous after their...

It's the All-Time "My Special Pain is Greater Than Yours" Series, starring two teams who inflicted heartbreak on both sides of town, the 1964 White Sox and the 1969 Cubs.

This series will have it all-the speedy hustle of Don Buford, timely hitting of Floyd Robinson, home run heroics of Ernie Banks and Billy Williams, pitching galore from Gary Peters, Joel Horlen, Hoyt Wilhelm, Fergie Jenkins and Kenny Holtzman. This mythical World Series between two of Chicago's "What...

APBA Game 12

Posted 04-28-2009 at 10:27 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

Just finished game 12 of my APBA season. It was the type of game that would cause 500 reply postgame threads, server overload and a complete crash-and-burn on WSI were it a real game.

The 1936 Sox took the early 2-0 lead, but Boston answered right back to make it 2-2. The White Sox eventually made it 6-3. Zeke Bonura was in fine form with two 2 RBI hits.
