[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

Despite fine individual performances by slugging third baseman/outfielder Bill Melton and pitchers Tommy John and Wilbur Wood, the 1970 Chicago White Sox set a club record with 106 losses.

Manager Don Gutteridge was fired in August and replaced on an interim basis by coach Bill Adair. In early September, Chuck Tanner took over as Sox skipper and would remain in the position until the end of the 1975 season.
