1981 White Sox Season Preview

I encountered the following video-film while trying to figure out who exactly Ron Kittle is. Kittle made his debut in 1981, six years before my humble birth.

* Mention of Dick Allen? ✓
* Harold Baines with a magnificent afro? ✓
* Bill Veeck complaining? ✓
* Plattitudes and “happy talk”? ✓
* Current Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf asking “What are we doing here?” ✓
* Superb White Sox uniforms that look homemade? ✓
* Prison puns? ✓
* Rudyard Kipling allusions? ✓
* Disney-esque closing music? ✓
