Just when it seemed like this ballpark was all about the hitter, the G.F. White Sox produced their first impact pitcher. Doug Drabek showed he had all the talents going 12-5 with a 2.24 ERA. Drabek would go on to have a great 13 year career as a starting pitcher. He won 22 games for the Pirates in 1990. The G.F. White Sox meanwhile broke the 100k mark for the season again. Russ Mormon (24 2B, 17 HR, .310) and Ron Karkovice (.216) came to the team in 1985, attendance dropped back to the 69k mark as the team failed to make the playoffs. The Chisox would say goodbye to East Field and the Eastern League after 1985 spending a total of 6 years here.
