Is it already the 12-year anniversary of Greg Norton's 7th inning sac fly that got the Sox within two runs in a losing effort against Detroit?

On this day in Sox history . . . ..

May 27, 2007:  after reaching their high-water mark of 4 games above .500 (24-20), the Sox suffer an 11-5 loss to Tampa Bay, beginning a 5-game losing streak that will take them below .500.  They will not be above .500 again for the rest of the season.   Highlight of the Sox loss? Power arms Thornton, MacDougal, Sisco give up 6 runs in 2 innings of work.

This Date In White Sox History - May 28th






May 28, 1973 - A night Wilbur Wood will never forget. Two days earlier the game between Cleveland and the White Sox was suspended by curfew tied at two after 16 innings. Rain washed out action on the 27th so when the suspended game was resumed on the 28th, it was Wood’s turn to pitch. He went out and threw five innings before the White Sox would win it 6 - 3 in 21 innings on a Dick Allen three-run walk off home run off of Indians' reliever Ed Farmer. Game one was also the MLB debut for White Sox outfielder Bill Sharp. Thirty minutes later Wood went out and started the regularly scheduled game. He would toss a complete game, four hit shut out, winning 4 - 0. Two wins in one evening! His line for the night, 14 innings pitched, one run, six hits, nine strikeouts, two wins.

Why in the hell did they go to RED as the primary uni color in the early '70s?  Talk about being confused with the "other" Sox... !!!???

IIRC, when that Sports Illustrated cover came out, there was a lot of furor over the  dugout photo so the American League fined Dick Allen for smoking in the dugout.

Dick Allen did it when he was with the Phillies too.  See:

This Date In White Sox History - May 29th









May 29, 1999 - The White Sox beat the Tigers 7 - 1 in a Saturday afternoon game at Tigers Stadium. In the 7th inning of the game, White Sox third baseman Greg Norton hits his eight home run of the season. It's also the third consecutive game that Norton has hit at least one home run. He had hit two HRs in each of the last two games. That's five home runs for Norton in three days.  1999 would turnout to be not only Norton's most productive season in a White Sox uniform but also his career season highs in ABs, runs scored, hits, doubles, walks and RBI.  His 16 Hrs for 1999 would be his career high until the 2006 season when he hit 17 for Tampa Bay.

Even the  blue travel jerseys in the Dick Allen era were zipper closure.  Quaint - or strange.

This Date In White Sox History - May 30th

 

May 30, 1985 - In the bottom of the 4th inning, Carlton Fisk belts a two-run home run off of Royals Charlie Leibrandt that lands on the left field roof at Comiskey Park. It helps Tom Seaver and the Sox win 4 - 3. It was the start of a four game sweep of the Royals and a week in which Fisk would hit five home runs and drive in 12 RBI.

This Date In White Sox History - May 30th





May 30, 1960 - In game 2 of a Memorial Day doubleheader, Cleveland outfielder Jimmy Piersall, who would become a White Sox announcer in the 70's and early 80's, goes on a rampage against the scoreboard and Comiskey Park. Piersall started by throwing the contents of the Indians' dugout on to the field. Then he went into the White Sox dugout grabbing a bucket of groundskeeper Gene Bossard’s sand and dumped that on the field. Piersall then didn’t move when a ball hit by Minnie Minoso came right at him. It went over his head for a double and adding insult to injury, the Sox thought it was a home run and set off the scoreboard! Finally after making the game ending catch, Piersall threw the ball at Bill Veeck's new  $300K exploding scoreboard. Piersall's crazed antics had no negative effect on his teammates as they swept the doubleheader against the White Sox.

Nice old photo of a Red Sox & White Sox game at Comiskey Park on August 23, 1957

That's Billy Pierce making the between innings warmup pitches to catcher Sherm Lollar while Ted Williams is studying  Bill's pitches in the top of the 6th inning.  Ted's 'timing' antics didn't work this time as Billy struck him out and went on to pick up another complete game and his 17th win of the season as the White Sox beat the Red Sox 4 - 1 before 24,178 on a Friday night.

Box+PBP of this game: http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/1957/B08230CHA1957.htm

Note: This was three seasons before Bill Veeck turned the old scoreboard into an 'exploding' one.

May 31, 1970 - On a Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, a twenty-four hit attacked helped the White Sox put up 'crooked numbers' in four separate innings as they beat the Red Sox 22 - 13.  Walt 'No Neck' Williams and Luis Aparicio each had five hits. Bill Melton led the way with 4 RBI as the White Sox handed a loss to an old teammate, the former  1963 ROY hurler Gary PetersFloyd Weaver picked up the win in relief for the White Sox.

May 31, 1914 - At Comiskey Park, three fourth-inning White Sox errors ruin the shutout, but Joseph Benz still no-hits the Naps (Indians), 6-1. It only take the right-hander known as 'Blitzen' one hour and 45 minutes to accomplish the deed.
