YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1921 A jury acquits eight White Sox players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series.

1985 On a single by Rickey Henderson, White Sox center fielder Luis Salazar throws out Bobby Meacham at the plate – and Carlton Fisk remains standing long enough to tag Dale Berra, who also tried to score on the play.

I remember watching this game from a hotel room in Albany, NY a day before heading to Cooperstown to tour the Hall of Fame and Museum. I haven’t seen Ross Tarlow in years… Hey, Ross. Drop me a line.
