April 11, 1967

Chicago White Sox (0-1)00010311000691
Boston Red Sox (1-0)001001103017163

Crowds lined up early in front of Fenway Park, eagerly awaiting the start of the 1967 Major League Baseball season. On the mound was Gary Peters for the visiting Chicago White Sox and Jim Lonborg for the hometown Boston Red Sox. In a spirited contest, the Red Sox pulled out the win, defeating the White Sox by the score of 7-6.

Earning player of the game honors was Jim Hicks. The Red Sox got a big at-bat from center fielder Reggie Smith. For the game, Smith went 1 for 5 with a walk. In the bottom of the 11th, with the bases loaded, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 1st hit of the season gave Boston a 7-6 lead.

 "It was a test of wills," said Dick Williams, the Boston skipper. "I'm glad we came out of it with a win."
