Somehow, I can’t see this happening today.
In a game at Comiskey Park against the Yankees, a fan held up the contest for nearly an hour while he argued a call with one of the umpires. That’s right ... a fan!
The Sox would eventually win the game, 9-8, in 10 innings, scoring seven unanswered runs to pull it off. Jake Jones’ single scored Floyd “the Blotter” Baker to win it.
White Sox outfielder Ken Williams hit a two-run home run in the eighth 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.
