I'd just like the part with the fan situation. I'll send you a personal e-mail through the site with my info, just let me know and I'll get back to you with a replacement CD.

As a Sox historian, many thanks!

Just heard the clip that Chisox59 sent me as called by Yankee broadcaster Mel Allen. Pretty wild.

According to Allen the fan (Jesse James) stood there saying something to Esposito, then Espo swung at him and connected. The fan started swinging back, both guys went at it before the Andy Frain ushers got there to break it up and haul the guy off. Allen said it was the first time in years he had seen a player take a swing at a fan (but certainly justified in this case.)

What I remember learning way back in the day and hopefully my memory is correct is that the fan who confronted Esposito said "don't blow the game." There were a lot of Damon Runyon type characters at Comiskey Park in those days and some guys were known to bet on anything and everything as the game was played. Balls, strikes, possible hits, you name it. Guys would make small bets against each other constantly. It was alleged that one of those bets gone awry caused this incident. Now admittedly I was only 9 at the time and I remember reading different accounts down through the years. My long term memory is usually pretty good but for better or worse this is how I recall the incident. This game was a tough loss as the Sox were trying to overtake the Yankees and repeat as pennant winners.
