Reviews

The illustrated “World Series Champions Series” spotlights the teams that have achieved the lofty goal of winning Major league Baseball’s hallowed World Series. In this case, the focus is on the Chicago White Sox, a franchise that has won three World Series but also has a history of very uneven performance. Organized in 1901 the Chicago White Stockings shortened their name to “White Sox” three years later. A powerhouse team in the first two decades of their existence, the White Sox won the World Series in 1906 and 1917. In 1919 the White Sox lost the World Series to the underdog Cincinnati Reds. Following this defeat, a number of White Sox star players were suspended for life from Major league Baseball due to a gambling scandal that involved the throwing of games. It was not until 2005 that the White Sox would win another World Series. Subsequent to that championship, the White Sox have been an inconsistent team which has not challenged for a championship in any real sense. This team history, as well as brief profiles of some all-time great White Sox players, make up the narrative of this sports book. In this way, readers will learn snippets of information about White Sox stars such as Frank Thomas, Paul Konerko, Nellie Fox, and Shoeless Joe Jackson. Young baseball fans will enjoy this brief history of the White Sox and the ballplayers who worked so hard to bring championships to Chicago.
