I was in the service watching the series with a roomful of my brothers in arms when Jackson hit those three straight dingers for the Yanks. It was awesome. Mr. October indeed.

Still think this is a great thread oak.

If you have a little time to kill put some music on, start at page one and scroll through the entire thread at the great photos that we have posted. It's really quite a gallery.

Great idea! Think I'll do that this evening. Now it's time for the track before it gets to be 100 in the shade.

McCarver wasn't the only out of town great to play for Sox in 1974-75 -- so did this great Tigers second 2nd baseman -- his career ended ingloriously though -- during the stretch run of our 1975 pennant year, on Sept. 1 he dropped a pop fly for an error, then later pulled Yastrzemski off the bag w/a bad throw to first -- he was left off post season roster
but of course he was 1 of league's top 2nd basemen on all those great Tygiz teams

Those Tygiz had some good defensive clubs. Al Kaline, Norm Cash, Mickey Stanley, Don Wert, Bill Freehan, McAuliffe.....All above average or near the top at their positions as defenders.

Luis Aparicio, same thing -- played his last 3 years w/Sawx -- retired at 39 after 1973 season in which he hit a solid .271, his best season w/us

Sawx fans know bettah than to just remembr Luis for The Stumble -- Oct. 2 1972 -- w/ 1/2 game lead over them, we needed 2 games to beat Tygiz for AL East title

but big rally in 1st game ended when Luis stumbled rounding 3rd on a screamer by Yaz -- they both ended up on 3rd base, then Reggie Smith fanned to end inning, Lolich went on to fan 15, Tygiz won 3-1 or so, then won div. winning next day's game, rendering moot the season finale -- which of course we won

But Luis was one of the definite greats w/ChiSox & Orioles

Chili's our hitting coach -- Solid journeyman career -- I thought Bobby Bonds at 1st




Rick was immense w/a career-high 19 wins on our 1975 pennant team -- like Chili a solid career

Rick Wise will always be remembered for his famous no-hitter against the Reds in 1971, in which he homered twice.

ON THIS DAY, 1970
On his 80th birthday the Yankees retire the jersey of the Ol' Perfesser, w/Mantle & Berra
Casey -- w/all his goofy sayings etc, a great player -- NY hero in 1923 WS winning game 1 w/an inside the park HR w/2 out in 9th -- & game 3 w/another HR
career .284 hitter -- spent his last 2 years as a player in Boston w/NL Braves -- & last few years w/the Wets giving rise to many Casey-isms -- "if they say it can't work, it don't always work that way" etc etc
