I remember the 1962 season very well as that was the year I was a vendor. Saw many of Herbert's wins that year. Went to a Sat afternoon game in mid August, got in free but didn't feel like vending that day and watched Herbert beat the Tigers 2-0, went all nine innings allowing 3 hits.

PS Sox had went 85-77 that year which was their worst year since I started following them in earnest in 1954 but one of the best games I ever saw was the last Friday night home game of the season when the Sox scored 6 runs in the bottom of the ninth to beat the Yankees 7-6. IIRC the winning hit was a by a guy named Deacon Jones.
Batting in the second position for the White Sox, number 2, the second baseman Nelson Fox.
