Chicago White Sox MLB baseball

The Chicago White Sox, led by slugger Jermaine Dye, are an exciting team to watch. During this 2006 season, the White Sox have been far more competitive than the Chicago Cubs. The White Sox are just a good team that won the World Series in 2005.

The White Sox won the World Series in 2005 and before that in 1917. In 1906, the White Sox beat Chicago’s other team, the Cubs to win the MLB World Series. The White Sox reached the World Series in 1919, and the result was the famous scandal in which 8 White Sox players conspired with gamblers to fix the World Series. The White Sox lost.

In what can be a confusing bit of history the White Sox were originally the Sioux City Cornhuskers, and then the Chicago Whitestockings. The Chicago Cubs also used to be called the Chicago Whitestockings.
