my new scanner is not set up correctly yet so the color is off on these...the tickets are actually blue and the hot dog ticket is orange....but you get the idea...friend of mine gave me these, said he got them from his grandmother years ago.








now the odd part...this game doesn't show up in the baseball almanac? It's also inter-league? I have looked online and can't find anything about it.

Also...another odd thing...the June 29, 1952 game was a double header against the Cleveland Indians that ended with game 2 being a 7-7 tie....wth?

Teams used to schedule games with their minor league teams during the season; the backups usually played in those games. I would assume the Cubs and White Sox played exhibition games every once in awhile for the same reason, to give their reserves a little playing time and the owners a little more cash.

The first ticket was a charity game to raise money for boys clubs. The Sox won the game 5-4. With the score tied 3-3 in the 8th inning, the Sox scored twice. The Cubs' Bob Addis hit a solo homerun in the 9th but that wasn't enough as the home team held on for the win.

There were no regularly scheduled interleague games back then. The Cubs and Sox played a city series, and some charity games.

You can research stuff like this yourself by using online newspaper articles. I just searched the Chicago Tribune online archive for the day after the game was played, and got the recap.

Got to rember this was when the game was pure. Plus the players agreement was still in effect in 1952 so Im going to assume if the owner said we are doing this then the players didnt have much of a choice in the matter.
