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

[B]Excerpt from [I]SOX! A Fan's Memoir[/I] by Dick Dopey [/B](Diamond Communications, South Bend, IN. 2006)

My entire neighborhood was abuzz with excitement that weekend when the White Sox tied the Yankees, which would mean a one game playoff for the pennant. I was the envy of every kid on my block when I announced that my mom had scored three tickets for the game, and I would be playing hooky from school in order to attend the game with my mother and four year old brother. Even then,...

[B]Excerpt from [I]Yog: The Wit and Wisdom of Baseball's Master Zen Philosopher [/I]by Maury Honig [/B](Doubleday Books New York, 1985)

Another example of Yog's inscrutible wisdom came in October, 1964. The Yankees had tied the White Sox for the pennant and made their way to Chicago for the one-game playoff.

Berra sought out Whitey Ford, who had gone out partying on Rush Street the night before with Mickey Mantle. He found Ford holding his head between his knees, moaning...

Coming soon...Elseworlds

Posted 06-30-2009 at 12:48 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

I have decided to have some fun with my APBA jones and have APBA "Elseworlds." The concept is similar to DC Comics' Elseworlds, only with several batmen instead of just one.

This previous scenario was a matchup between the Sox and Cubs and how it may have played out had Interleague Play begun in 1969; with APBA supplying the plays and results. Any similarities between the characters in the story and real people is a damn shame.

Next APBA Elseworld-The 1964 White...

The Cubs and White Sox met in the South Side ballyard for one more go-round before being forced by their respective schedules to cease hostilities and carry on with the rest of their seasons. The two teams sent off their fans with the kind of thriller that most of them had hoped for when they plunked down their hard-earned...
