Dan Holm and the 1964 Pale Hose are our 2014-15 Holiday Festival Champions. In 6 rounds of action the Sox NEVER once faced an elimination game. The team finished a remarkable 20-5 during the tournament. The axiom of "Good Pitching beats Good Hitting" held to form with this team. Juan Pizzaro (6-0, 2.10) had a perfect tournament. Fittingly he pitched the clincher. Gary Peters (5-1, 2.04) was also stingy when it came to giving up runs. Joel Horlen (2-2, 1.29) was the stingiest. Unfortunately he never really got any run support during his magnificent outings. Pete Ward (.340-3-18) and Don Buford (.337-1-10-5sb) were constantly on base and getting he big hit. Moose Skowron's 5 homers all seemed to come at just the right time. Dave "Swish" Nicholson (.353-3-6) and Mike Hershberger (.417-0-2) were key platoon / bench contributors as this was a total team effort led by some of the most underrated arms in baseball history.
