Sleepers Awake! Thursday, August 24th, 1967

CHI 4, NY 1 W-Peters 10-8 L-Talbot 5-5

After they played 5 games in 3 days at Tiger Stadium, including a 15-inning and a 13-inning affair, panicked doctors rushed onto the field and ordered strict bed rest for both squads. After being swept in a doubleheader on Tuesday--and rather convincingly--the Twins had fallen 10 games off the pace and looked dead, but they came back to sweep a doubleheader of their own yesterday and won again today to draw back to within 7 of the Tigers. Now, the managers of both clubs have a decision to make: Memory Foam or Sleep Number?

I guess that's why managers make the big bucks!
