The Eighth One-Game Tiebreaker in MLB History

30 September 2008 No Comment

With the Minnesota Twins sitting ½ games ahead of the Chicago White Sox before last night’s game, a White Sox loss would have sent the Twins to the playoffs and the White Sox home for the winter. However, last night’s White Sox victory over the Detroit Tigers forced the eighth one-game tiebreaker in MLB history.

Tonight will be the second one-game tiebreaker I attend as the White Sox host the Twins in a 6:30 pm start at U.S. Cellular Field. The last one-game tiebreaker I attended was September 28, 1998. The Chicago Cubs hosted the San Francisco Giants that night at Wrigley Field. Knowing that tie-breaker games generally have high demand for tickets, I bought my tickets as soon as they went on sale after last night’s game was officially over.
