White Sox home run No. 32 for Dick Allen was the franchise’s first that landed in the center field bleachers.
On Aug. 23, 1972, Allen (@DickAllen_15) sent a Lindy McDaniel offering into the seats where Harry Caray was broadcasting. The ball traveled 460-feet landed 3-feet from Caray, according to the next day’s Chicago Tribune.
The roundtripper helped the Sox beat the Yankees 5-2 and moved them into first-place in the American League West. The game drew 24,678 putting the Sox past 1,000,000 in attendance for the first time since 1965.
