Collins was one ugly mamajamma

Collins was 'handsome' when compared to Don Mossi. Think an even uglier Jamie Farr (Klinger from the TV show M.A.S.H.).  His nickname was 'Ears' as his ears stuck out like Mickey Mouse ears.

Jim Bouton wrote in Ball Four Don Mossi’s ears were so big that Mossi “looked like a cab going down the street with its doors open.”

Judge for yourself.

Today In White Sox History - June 7th

 

 

June 7, 1944 - Tiger southpaw Hal Newhouser walks nine in six innings, a contributing factor in the 3-1 loss to White Sox at Comiskey Park. 'Prince Hal', a future Hall of Famer, will average nearly 4.5 base on balls per nine innings during the season.  Orval Grove scattered five hits over 9 innings in picking up the complete game win for the White Sox.

Today In White Sox History - June 8th

Ten years ago today . . .





June 8, 2001 - In front of a record-setting crowd of 45,936 at the new Comiskey Park, the White Sox beat their North Side rivals in ten-innings when Carlos Lee hits a two-out walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the 10th inning to give the Pale Hose a dramatic victory over the Cubs, 7-3.

Before the question is asked about the 'patch' on Carlos Lee's uniform:

The two Carlos Lee photos in the above post are from the actual game on June 8, 2001 and were taken as he hit the GW GS.

The uniform patch on his right sleeve is the 'The American League 100 Seasons Charter Member Patch' which was worn during the 2001 season by the 4 charter member teams (White Sox, Red Sox, Tigers & Indians) of the American League.  The other 10 AL teams wore a slighly different version of the patch that didn't include the words 'charter member'.

So I guess "charter member" was defined as one of the original franchises that hadn't moved to a different city... because I would consider the Yanks, Twins, Orioles, and A's charter franchises too.

Today In White Sox History - June 9th

 

June 9, 1987 - White Sox outfielder Kenny Williams hits a two run home run in the 8th inning breaking up a no-hit bid by the A’s Curt Young. It would be the only hit on the day for the Sox who would lose 8 - 3.

This Date In White Sox History - June 9th



 

June 9, 1997 - 90-year-old former White Sox pitcher Thornton Lee dies in Tucson, Arizona. During his sixteen year MLB career, Lee pitched 11 seasons for the White Sox.

Lee reached the major leagues in 1933 at age twenty-seven and struggled for four years with Cleveland. His fortunes changed when White Sox manager Jimmy Dykes saw something in the lefthander and obtained him in a three-way deal. Relying on fine control and a sinking fastball, he blossomed under the tutelage of coach Muddy Ruel and became one of baseball's top lefthanders from 1937 to 1941. But little offensive support left him on the losing end of many close decisions.

In 1941 he had a great year, leading the league with 30 complete games and a 2.37 ERA, and collecting a $2,500 bonus for winning more than 20. Three years of misery followed; he broke his arm and underwent two bone chip removals and a neck operation. He bounced back in 1945, going 15-12, and was still pitching at age forty-two, nine years before his son, pitcher Don Lee, broke in with the Tigers. Ted Williams homered off both of them, the only man to hit a HR off a father and son. (DB)

This Date In White Sox History - June 10th

Twenty years ago today . . .

 

 

June 10, 1991 - The White Sox win a thrilling 13-inning  3 - 2 game at Arlington Stadium on a bang-bang game-ending play at the plate. Two unearned runs in the top of the 13th inning gave the White Sox a two run lead.  Then in the bottom of the 13th, with two outs, one run already in and the tying run at 2nd base, White Sox first baseman Dan Pasqua boots an infield grounder but second baseman Joey Cora quickly recovers and throws a strike to catcher Matt Merullo who tags out the sliding Rangers pitch runner Mario Diaz to end the game!

Today in MLB History - June 10th


1944 - Pitcher Joe Nuxhall of the Cincinnati Reds is the youngest player in major-league history. Nuxhall, only 15 years, ten months old, pitches one-third of an inning in an 18-0 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. He manages to give up five walks and two hits before his manger takes him out.

1968 - American League games at Baltimore and Chicago are postponed as mourning for Robert Kennedy continues. Astros Bob Aspromonte and Rusty Staub are fined for not playing. Pittsburgh's Maury Wills also refuses to play and is reportedly punished.

1975 - The Yankees sponsor Army Day at their temporary home, Shea Stadium (Yankee Stadium is being refurbished).  In honor of Army Day, the Yankees held a 21-gun salute with cannons situated on the warning track facing the American flag behind the centerfield fence. The cannons held blanks but the blasts were still so powerful they knocked over three panels, set a fourth on fire, and shattered the windows at the stadium’s Diamond Club.

June 10, 1961 - With owner Bill Veeck in ill health, his group sells the White Sox to Chicagoan Arthur Allyn, Jr.. Veeck only owned the club for two and a half years the first time around.

On the same day of the sale, the White Sox make an eight player deal that nets the team pitchers Ray Herbert, Don Larsen and infielder Andy Carey from Kansas City. One week later the Sox began a 12 game winning streak that saved the season. Herbert would then go on to win twenty games in 1962.

I think you're mistaken as Keevich played for the Sox from '36 - '41 and was out of baseball by '46.  Topps or Bowman never made a Kreevich card.  When I was searching for a photo of Kreevich to use in the above post, I only found one card and that was a '44 Play Ball card where he was depicted in a St. Louis Browns uniform.  The large photo I ended up using was Kreevich in a Browns uniform.  If you really have a Kreevich card in a White Sox uniform, it's an 'off-brand' rare card.  Probably worth some money.

see:


There are a couple of postcards/photos that show him in a Sox uniform but they aren't 'trading cards' per se.

No, it was a 54 or 55 card I think, I must have the wrong guy. Had to be a similar name possibly. Or I am hallucinating.

You're probably confusing him with Bob Keegan.  A pitcher who played for the Sox from '53 - '58. Or Ed McGhee, an outfielder from the middle '50s.

Thanks Andy, I have at least 2-3 of those, so yeah, most likely it was him. I probably remember seeing Kreevich's name in some record books, or reading old stats. Did not realize Keegan was around that long.
