Ka-Boom....Eventually

The White Sox exploding scoreboard was unveiled on this day in 1960.  It wasn't until May 1st that a White Sox player homered to trigger the scoreboard to erupt.  That was a great site to see as a kid at a night game.  The new stadium's scoreboard kept the same style as the original.

Even as a Cub fan, some of my favorite baseball ambassadors were involved in this game.

Billy Pierce, the winning pitcher, lived nearby and was alway around baseball events and card shows.

Minnie Minoso, who had a double, stolen base and sacrifice fly, was present at ball games and as a team representative at community events.

Jimmy Piersall, whose movie I watched last night, was quite entertaining with Harry Caray.


Jim Perry was probably the only player on the two rosters to get into a regular Kellogg's set.
