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

June 4,1972
vs. New York Yankees
at White Sox Park

The Sox go into this day still smarting from the 18-10 lashing laid on them by the Yankees the day before. They are in 2nd place in the AL West, behind the defending champ Oakland A's.

The first big news of this DH was the crowd. It was Bat Day at Sox Park, and 51,904 fans jammed their way into every single inch of available space to see the game. It was a far cry from the 672...

vs. New York Yankees

Ouch.

Even winning teams have days like this. The White Sox go up against the Yankees in front of a Saturday afternoon crowd of 35,309. They blow two leads, one in the top of the 9th, commit five errors and go into extras tied 10-10. In the 13th, the Yankees run up 8 runs, six of them coming in on three run home runs by Thurman Munson and Bobby Murcer. The Yankees take this one...

Games and Moments

May 22,1972
vs. Texas Rangers
at Arlington Stadium

Vicente Romo stood on the Arlington Stadium mound, awaiting his signal. Texas Ranger hitter Don Mincher stepped in against him with a man on 1st and one out. Romo was out there to protect a 7-6 Sox lead in the bottom of the 10th. Ranger fans cheered for Don to end it with one swing, or least get on base.

The game, the first one the Sox played in the Lone Star State, had been a...

Games and Moments

May 21,1972
vs. California Angels
at White Sox Park

The improved White Sox continue to win and win some more. They conclude the month of April with an 8-5 record, the same one they had when they occupied 1st pace for a brief spell in 1969; a short oasis in a long, agonizing three year desert of suck.

These Sox don't fall down, however. They play especially well at home, losing only two games at Sox Park up to this point. On the...

Games and Moments

April 25 & 26, 1972
vs. Cleveland Indians
at White Sox Park

Two of the biggest White Sox names shined on back-to-back days vs. the Indians.

The first was Wilbur Wood. Chuck Tanner lacked an effective 4th starter going into the season. So he and Johnny Sain went with a decidedly insane three man rotation of Wood, Tom Bradley and Stan Bahnsen. Workhorse Wilbur and the other two would be pitching on two days' rest, occasionally...
