Dick Allen Returns to Chicago
CHICAGO (AP) -- In a career full of highlights, returning to the site of some of his greatest professional moments topped the list for Chicago White Sox great Dick Allen.

Thirty-eight years after leaving Chicago, Allen made his homecoming on Monday as the Chicago Baseball Museum begins its tribute to the 1972 team, the year he won the MVP Award.

Recounting what he called ''the best three years of his baseball life'' Allen shared stories of mammoth home runs, a two inside-the-park home run game and stealing home plate, all in a White Sox uniform.
