WINNING. UGLY. hat was a special year,” said Greg Walker, who had several
reasons to remember the 1983 White Sox. For general manger Roland Hemond
and manager Tony La Russa, it was a year of satisfaction and redemption after
receiving a groundswell of scrutiny and criticism for not finishing higher than third
place since La Russa had taken over for Don Kessinger in the middle of the 1979
