This Day in White Sox History: Sox catch a road-runner

December 12, 1975 - In an effort to start improving a desultory offense, Sox GM Roland Hemond and new owner Bill Veeck acquired former NL batting champ Ralph Garr from Atlanta for three players including outfielder Ken Henderson and pitcher Dick Ruthven. "The Road Runner" Garr would have severe limitations in the field but he did become the catalyst for the “South Side Hit Men” in 1977 with his speed and ability to hit to all fields. That year he’d hit .300 with 10 home runs, 54 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.

December 12, 1980 - Sometimes the smaller moves are what turn out to be important. Sox G.M. Roland Hemond traded pitcher Richard Wortham to the Expos for switch hitting, second baseman Tony Bernazard. Bernazard would be part of the “New Deal” Sox in 1981 and would eventually be traded for another productive second baseman, Julio "Juice" Cruz in June 1983. Manager Tony LaRussa called Bernazard the heart of the club during his time with it.
