1970 Topps #518 - Bill Melton
On this day in 1969, the White Sox played the first MLB game in Seattle against the Pilots, who would move to Milwaukee and become the Brewers the next season.
The Pale Hose got their butts handed to them by the expansion team by the score of 7-0. There were no players that had a great offensive game for the Sox, but the man who had the most productive day would be Beltin' Bill Melton.
Bill smacked two doubles and had two walks on the day. He was stranded each time, which goes to show that this isn't a recent phenomenon, as some would have you believe. The White Sox would finish the 1969 season by winning sixty-eight games, which was good enough for fifth place, only four games above the last place Seattle Pilots.
