COUNTDOWN TO SOX OPENING DAY: 69 DAYS (RIP HAMMERIN’ HANK)

69 days to Opening Day White Sox fans!

Hit No. 69 of Hank Aaron’s Milwaukee Brewers’ career was a two-run single against the White Sox on July 21, 1975 at Comiskey Park (which was then known as White Sox Park).

Aaron’s hit, the 3,369th of his career, came off Claude Osteen in the third inning and plated Bob Sheldon and Robin Yount in the Brewers’ 7-4 victory.

Aaron died Friday at the age 86.

COUNTDOWN TO SOX OPENING DAY: 72 DAYS (PUDGE!)

72 days to Opening Day White Sox fans!

No player in White Sox history had a better season of Opening Days than Carlton Fisk did in 1981.

In his White Sox debut and in the stadium he called home for the previous 10 seasons, Fisk launched a dramatic three-run homer in the eighth that gave his new Sox the lead for good in a 5-3 win over Boston on Opening Day at Fenway Park.

Four days later, in his White Sox Comiskey Park debut, Fisk thrilled an Opening Day crowd of 51,560 with a grand slam in a 9-3 triumph of the Milwaukee Brewers.

And the White Sox legend of Carlton Fisk was off and running!
