Grandpa's Ticket Stub
My dad was cleaning out one of his drawers and came across an envelope that he hadn't opened in twenty years. It contained pictures and things from his father.
No one says a word to me, when I receive a mysterious envelope in the mail from my dad. This is odd in itself because mom always sends things, never dad.
"Open carefully" the note says wrapped around a taped up cardboard sleeve.
Inside, I spot this...
It was the second game of a double header against the St. Louis Browns. The White Sox won the first game 5-2, behind a complete game by Monty Stratton. The second game was a bit more tricky.
The White Sox started Sugar Cain, but he only lasted four and a third innings. The White Sox kept battling and won it in the bottom of the ninth on a Mike Kreevich RBI single. The final score was 9-8.
This is one of the coolest pieces of White Sox history in my possession. Thanks, dad!
