COUNTDOWN TO WHITE SOX OPENING DAY: 8 DAYS

8 days until Opening Day, White Sox fans!

Jim Spencer, the first baseman for the 1977 South Side Hit Men White Sox, is the only player in team history with two 8-RBI games and they happened only 39 days apart (May 14, 1977 and July 2, 1977).

FYI: Spencer’s 8-RBI performance on May 14, 1977 came in a game which started at 10:30 a.m. at Comiskey Park. The fans on hand watched Spencer’s historic performance while munching on free Egg McMuffins, McDonald’s newest menu item.

Other Sox players with 8-RBI games: Carl Reynolds (July 2, 1930), Tommy McCraw (July 2, 1967) and Robin Ventura (Sept. 4, 1995).
