1967 White Sox Coaching Staff

Eddie Stanky, Manager - Les Moss - Kerby Farrell - Grover Resinger - Marv Grissom are shown here during spring training at Payne Park in Sarasota, Fl. It's interesting to note during 1967 spring training, the team donned the previous year's uniform style (numbers on sleeve). Not until opening day at Comiskey Park in 1967 did the team showcase the new 1967 style (numbers on chest).


  1. Eddie Stankey was a very hard nosed manager. As a player, several times he had more than 140 walks and a lifetime OBP over .400. For a singles hitter, he must have had incredible knowledge of the strike zone. I loved how he used the players' speed to be aggressive on the bases. Very exciting games despite weak offense.

  2. I totally agree. Stanky brought the 1940s NL small ball style, only he had his guys do more base stealing. I love the style of play because you never know what's going to happen. Whitey Herzog brought that approach, or a variation of it, to St. Louis in the 80s. Can't tell you how many times a guy would walk, steal second, be sac bunted to third then score on a ground out. 1 run, 0 hits.
