September 22

1959 Topps #22 - Al Smith

On this day in 1959, the White Sox won the American League pennant.

Al Smith and Jim Rivera would hit back to back home runs to propel the White Sox to victory in a 4-2 win over Cleveland. The ChiSox would go on to lose to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.

After the Sox clinched, Chicago fire commissioner Robert Quinn ordered the air raid sirens to alarm. This caused celebration and panic among Chicagoans.
