Default This Date In Sox History 11-19

November 19, 1977 - In the wake of free agent defections by Richie Zisk and Oscar Gamble, owner Bill Veeck signs infielder Ron Blomberg to a free agent contract. Blomberg missed the previous two years with a severe leg injury but Veeck signed him anyway. On opening day hed hit a dramatic 9th inning game tying home run but he did very little afterwards. Making matters worse is that Veeck signed him to a guaranteed multi year contract instead of using the money to try to keep either Zisk or Gamble!

November 19, 1972 - Roland Hemond sends Tom Bradley to San Francisco for outfielder Ken Henderson and pitcher Steve Stone. Henderson was a Gold Glove winning, power hitting center fielder while Stone added depth to the pitching staff. In 1977 he'd lead the Sox with 15 wins. Bradley never regained the form that he showed with the Sox and was out of baseball by 1975.
