During major league baseball's - 'era of the pitcher,' the Chicago White Sox took a back seat to no other team. With manager Eddie Stanky at the helm, the Sox posted the lowest American League team earned run average (2.45) in almost 50 years. Not since the 'dead ball era' Washington Senators compiled a resounding 2.14 ERA in 1918 had any AL team posted such a low team era. Led by pitching legend Walter Johnson, the Senators finished the 1918 season at 72-56, in 3rd place, four games back of first place.

The Chicago White Sox ended with a solid 89-73 record in '67, in 4th place, 3 games out of first. However, the Sox batted a merger .225 as a team, and hit just 87 home runs. Left-handed hitting, third baseman Pete Ward led the club with 18 homers and led in RBIs with 62. No starter batted over .245 for the entire year - outfielders Ken Berry and Don Buford each hit .241, to tie for the lead on the Sox team in '67.
