Free Cards Question #8

Congrats to night owl, who knew that the White Sox came thisclose to moving to Florida in 1988!

Florida would have been a nice change of pace for the White Sox, but it wouldn't have been the same. Although I'm sure that in Florida, night games can be enjoyed all year long. In Chicago, April and September night games can be tricky. They can feel more like football weather.

I'd still rather see the White Sox play their home games in Chicago more than any other venue. In a pinch, the White Sox also have Wrigley Field as an option. Although the Sox have played home games in Milwaukee before. I'm sure that St. Louis and Detroit could be used in an emergency too.

Speaking of Detroit, there was a memorable event in Tiger Stadium featuring a moon and the White Sox.

Question #8

What year did Steve Lyons absentmindedly moon the crowd at first base in Detroit?

Good luck!

The year was 1990 when Steve Lyons pulled his pants down. Bonus trivia: I believe it was the final season of the uniforms before the current style was used.

We have a winner! Correct on both accounts.

Nice job!
