"( Al ) Lopez called me on the phone and said, 'Rudy, warm up real hard and when ( Ryne ) Duren comes to hit, hit him in the head. Metele un pelotazo (hit him with the ball).' Ay dios mio! (Oh my God) He had twenty pitchers and he used me, the small guy! When Duren comes to hit, I threw at his head and he moved. The next pitch, I knew he was going to move back, so I hit him right in the back. He came at me with the bat. I told Duren Ted ) Kluszewski stood right in front of me and told me not to run (Research Notes: It was actually Earl Torgeson ). He was a big guy!" - Rudy Arias (Nick Diunte Interview, Rudy Arias, member of the 1959 Go-Go White Sox, dies at 86 , Source )

Did you know Rudy Lopez was pitching in Triple-A Havana (Habana Lions) on August 17, 1958, when he no-hit the visiting Rochester Red Wings, and was given a $1,000 bonus by a local publisher? A unique trivia item included on the back of his 1959 Topps baseball card:
Rudy Arias Baseball Card
Rudy Arias | 1959 Topps Baseball Card (#537 | Checklist ) | Baseball Almanac Collection

The scrappy Go-Go Sox of 1959 , a team that broke a forty-year pennant drought in Chicago's South Side, was the subject of Go-Go to Glory: The 1959 Chicago White Sox (Don Zminda, ACTA Publications, 02/20/2009), a great reference book that included this excerpt, "Two hitters he (Rudy Arias) feared the most were Ted Williams and Mickey Mantle . As he remembers, when pitching to Mantle in a Spring Training game he ran the count to 2 and 1, followed by a second strike with the count now at 2 and 2. The catcher asked for a changeup and Mickey took a mighty swing. According to Arias, who laughs as he tells the story, 'That ball almost hit the sun.'"
