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

May 9,1975
vs. Cleveland Indians
at Municipal Stadium

It had been a year and a half since the White Sox had picked up Jim Kaat on waivers. He had made Roland Hemond look like a genius, going 4-1 over the rest of the 1973 season. The next year he went 21-13, including a 7-0 run at the end of the season.

Kaat continued his streak going into 1975, going 4-0 to tie John Rigney and Gary Peters for longest winning streak in club history. He wasn't quite as stingy...

May 3,1975
vs. Oakland A's
at White Sox Park

The White Sox go 2-6 following their 9th inning rally to beat the Twins. So much for Terry Forster's prediction. Speaking of whom, Terry loses the last of those games, in 12 innings to Oakland, to drop the team to 7-15 overall, settling them in last place.

The next night Claude Osteen takes the mound to face the A's in the second game of the series. He quickly fell behind 1-0 in the 1st inning on an RBI single by...

April 24,1975
vs. Minnesota Twins
at Metropolitan Stadium

The White Sox quickly started to live down to most people's expectations, stumbling out of the gate and unable to find the .500 mark. After 12 games they were 3-9 heading to Minnesota to meet the Twins. Before going there Terry Forster confidently predicted (for some reason) that the Sox would win 14 of the next 15 games. Maybe he saw something others didn't. The Sox did win a game after his prediction and were 4-9...

April 15,1975
vs. Texas Rangers
at White Sox Park

Turmoil reigned on the field and in the stands during the home opener.

The turmoil started at the end of spring training when Tony Muser, who was expecting to be the man at 1st base now that Dick Allen was gone, lost his job to Carlos May. An angry Muser blasted management and said he wanted to play or be traded. In a follow up story an unidentified player called Tanner a "phony." Tanner held a team...

April 8,1975
vs. Oakland A's
at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The big question facing the Sox going into 1975 was if they would win without Dick Allen. Richard Dozer thought so-he picked the Sox to finish second. Bob Verdi wasn't as confident, he saw them dropping to fifth.

The Sox took the field for a night opener vs. the Oakland A's. Charlie Finley's team had beaten the Orioles in the 1974 ALCS, then dispatched the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games to win...
