This Date In White Sox History:


May 16, 1953 - White Sox pitcher Tommy Byrne who was knocked out of the game in an eventual win against the Yankees two days earlier, is sent up to pinch hit in the 9th inning with the bases loaded and the Sox trailing 3 - 1. Byrne slams a full count pitch from Ewell “The Whip” Blackwell into the lower deck in right field at Yankee Stadium for the only pinch hit grand slam by a pitcher in team history! The Sox would win the game 5 - 3, scoring all their runs in the 9th inning.

May 17, 1969 - Sox pitcher Jerry Nyman one hit the Washington Senators, winning 6 - 0  at Comiskey Park before an announced crowd of 1,981. Nyman allowed only a one out single in the second inning to Brant Alyea.  Nyman helped his own cause in the 4th inning with a bases clearing two-out three-run double off of losing pitcher Camilio Pasqual.

I saw Colavito play when I was a kid.  Powerful hitter, impressive.

the State Of Illinois Sesquicentennial patch.



In 1968 both the White Sox and the Cubs wore this patch to honor the 150th anniversary of Illinois statehood.

Gary Peters and Ward finished 1-2  for the AL ROY in 1963.  They were my two favorite White Sox players when I was a kid.

Yeah, me too, I started following seriously in 1963, they came in 1964 and really helped turn that team around. I have that card of Pete Ward, tho mine is not signed. Pete sure had him some choppers, quite a set of teeth in his mouth.

First glove a Wee JohnJeter ever got had Rocky Colavito's sig on it, and it was some shytty off-brand, made by a hunting/fishing equipment company, started with a "B" (someone research that). I was like "who the f u c k is Rocky Colavito- what is this s h i t". Pretty sure that was the exact language I used too. I wanted Ernie Banks or would even settle for Billy Williams. Glove pretty much blew too, but lefties couldn't be choosers back in those days when only 1 out of 550 people or so were left-handed and countless natural lefties had been maimed.

Your parents didn't tie your left arm to your side to force you to develop right-handed dexterity?

My parents tied both my arms to my sides. What that was supposed to develop, I'm not sure. Maybe they wanted me to play soccer...

Great story.  One question, though. 

Who the f u c k is Ernie Banks?

Pretty sure it was to stop you from doing what you kept doing whenever you were alone.

Like the glove story, Jeter.  In addition to the chuckles, it brought back memories of digging through the mitt bin looking for one with a "cool" autograph.   And heh, there were rarely any lefties gloves, and their autographs totally blew.

My parents had a different approach for that.  I'm still not fully capable of talking about it without breaking into a panic-induced sweat, but the therapy is helping.

Those 61 and 62 cards of Herb Score bring back memories, traded for Barry Latman, I liked that guys name, so his 1960 card was one of my favorites.
