April 10

1968 Topps #413 - Tommy McCraw

On this day in 1968, riots on the West Side of Chicago hold the attending crowd for Opening Day to less than eight thousand. Out of the 9-0 embarrassing loss, the White Sox managed only two hits, one by Duane Josephson and the other by Ken Boyer. Joel Horlen was removed after only five innings, after giving up seven hits and five runs. Horlen took the loss.

The most productive player that day for the South Siders would be first baseman Tommy McCraw. He drew two walks and stole second. The only other White Sox player to reach base that day was Pete Ward, who walked once.
