In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."
White Sox thoughts and stuff about the White Sox.

1916 City Series

Regular Season

White Sox 89-65, 2nd, 2 GB
679,923

The 1916 Sox were inching ever closer to the goal of an AL pennant. They finished four games off the pace from 1915, but it was good enough for 2nd place, only two games out. Pants Rowland put up with critics in the press and fan corps as the Sox lagged in 6th place at 26-28. After that, they caught fire and went on a hot streak.

The Sox went into September with a good shot at the flag. They were only...

1915 City Series

Regular Season

White Sox 93-61, 3rd, 9.5 GB
539,461

The Old Roman effected changes for 1915. He fired manager Nixey Callahan and surprised people by hiring Clarence "Pants" Rowland, a "busher" who had never played a day in the major leagues. Back then, hiring a manager who had never played in the majors was unheard of.

He also improved the team by purchasing one of the best players in baseball, Eddie Collins of the Philadelphia...

1914 City Series

Posted 02-27-2012 at 09:41 AM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)

1914

White Sox 70-84, 6th, 30 GB
469,290

The White Sox played baseball year-round in 1914, for this was the year that the team embarked on a world tour, part of Charles Comiskey's attempt to internationalize the sport of baseball. The team left after the 1913 season ended and spent the entire offseason playing in such ports of call as Japan, Australia, Egypt, Ceylon and Italy. Their opponents for these games was John McGraw's New York Giants. One highlight of the...

1914 City Series II

The Series

Once again, the White Sox would be pioneers in baseball history, becoming the first team to fall behind 3 games to 1 and rally to win a postseason series. This would not happen in World Series play until the Pittsburgh Pirates would rally against the Washington Senators in 1925.

The Cubs and Sox traded wins in Games 1 and 2, then the Cubs took Game 3 and rallied in the 9th to take Game 4. That's when the Sox kicked it into gear, taking Game 5 3-1 and putting...

1913 City Series

White Sox 78-74, 5th, GB 17.5

New faces dominated the scene on the South Side this year-Ray Schalk took over as full-time catcher at age 20, Morrie Rath held down 2nd base, and the Sox acquired talented 1st baseman Hal Chase from the New York Yankees. Chase had been in the league since 1905 and was constantly and openly suspected of cavorting with unseemly characters and tanking plays and games. For some reason, Comiskey wanted him anyway, believing...
