Right on Q: More Found Objects

Some more video nuggets to keep you warm on a cold weekend.

Children of the Cold War might be familiar with the DEW Line, the series of Distant Early Warning Stations that were scattered across the Arctic Circle. The purpose of the DEW Stations was to look for Soviet bombers flying over the North Pole.

Since the weather in Chicago (and the Upper Midwest) will bear more than a passing resemblance to that of Point May, Alaska...hole up inside with some White Sox classics.

Septembe 29, 1990

The final night game at Old Comiskey Park. A clip of the ballpark going dark for the final time was part of the old scoreboard video montage. The late Jim Durham and Tom Paciorek have the call on WGN-TV.

The last series at Old Comiskey was also the debut for the black pinstripe uniforms that the White Sox wear to this very day.

October 5, 1983

Game 1 of the ALCS. 1983 was the final year coverage of the LCS was split between NBC/ABC and the local TV broadcast team. Here's the NBC coverage of the game:

The WFLD coverage (or at least the intro) can be found here.

April 20, 1987

The Milwaukee Brewers were hotter than hot in April of '87. On this night, the Crew had won 11 in a row. They would make it 12 with a 5-4 win over the White Sox at Comiskey. The Sox would end the streak the next night.

You will notice tarp covering the seats in the right field grandstand. Falling concrete forced a series of emergency repairs.

Happy viewing!
