Another obscure non-sequitur from Jeter?

Hmmm, it certainly follows logically from what I quoted from BlackSox, but upon pretending I didn't know what I was referring to, the reference wasn't so readily available upon googling. It is doable though, but yeah, a bit obscure.

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

The late '50s home jerseys were zippered too:

A one-liner from three days and a dozen posts ago?  Isn't that overestimating the mental capacity of your audience?  And by that, I mean me, as a majority of the others here have probably enabled some kind of "Ignore" function on you.

This Date In White Sox History - June 1st





June 1, 1985 - White Sox catcher Carlton Fisk slams his fifth home run in 4 games when he hits a two-run shot off the Royals Bret Saberhagen in  the 3rd inning of a White Sox  8 - 7 win at Comiskey Park.  'Pudge' drove in 12 runs in that stretch as '85 ended up as his most productive as a member of the White Sox. Fisk's totals for the year (37 home runs & 112 RBI) were the highest in his 24 year MLB career.

The road jerseys in the '40s also were zippered:

1995... the terribly disappointing start after the strike year.

Oh wow, just realized, that worked out well then. I was a Seattle Mariners fan in 1995. Bon temps to be sure.

This Date In White Sox History - June 2nd



 

June 2, 1985 - A four run bottom of the first inning was all the White Sox needed in beating the Kansas City Royals 4 - 1 at Comiskey Park.  White Sox first baseman Greg Walker capped off the first inning scoring with a three-run homer. Royals pitching then shut down the White Sox bats the rest of the way allowing only a 4th inning one-out single by White Sox catcher Marc 'Booter' Hill.  Starting pitcher Rich Dotson went 6 1/2 innings allowing 6 hits, one earned run while striking out six to pick up the victory.  White Sox closer Bob James  picked up his 10th save of the season.

"Sucked" isn't nearly strong enough to describe that incarnation of TAGS.  Talk about the across-the-board downgrades that show went through:

Ken Berry for Andy
Warren for Barn
Howard Sprague, Goober, and Emmett for Floyd, Gomer, and Ernest T Bass
Helen Cramp for Ellie
And Richie Cunningham for Opie (who had long outgrown that 9-year-old cute naivete by the time the show went color)

And if you think I forgot Aunt Bee, I didn't.  She was never anything on the show other than the source by which the family got fed.

I love rookie cards. Bruce Howard, one of two guys we chose to keep in the minors and left Denny McLain available for Detroit to nab. Anyone want to guess who the 2nd pitcher was that we protected along with Howard?

Ken Berry was a great CFer, but could not hit. Staehle was going to be our 2Bman, could not beat our Buford and Weis. Gibson I can recall only cause I have the same 1st name and also that we share the same Bday.  Bob Locker had a great sinker, was a nice setup man in the pen for Wilhelm/Fisher. Bollo I think went 4-2 one year, never heard of him again.

Andy, I was even going to give them a hint and say that he became an All Star, but that would have been mean.
