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

1907

White Sox 87-64, 3rd, 6 GB
667,307

OK, so let's get this straight-the 1906 White Sox lag behind in the second division until early August, hit a hot streak that carries them into first place, then go on to win the pennant and the World Series. The 1907 version spends 114 days in 1st place and winds up finishing in 3rd? Got it.

It is true. Fielder Jones' boys held the top spot for most of the season, but were unable to maintain it. They were as...

1906 World Series

Regular Season

White Sox 93-58, 1st, 3 GA
585,202

There really was no season quite like 1906 in the annals of Chicago baseball. For the first time since the Sox started in 1901, they and the Cubs finished in first place and faced each other in the World Series, an event which would not happen ever again. In fact, the Sox and Cubs would not finish in first place in the same season for another 102 years.

The two teams were a study in contrasts. The...

1905 City Series

Regular Season

White Sox 92-60, 2nd place, 2 GB
687,419

The 1905 White Sox improved a bit from 1904, winning 92 games. They actually had the most wins in the AL that year, tied with the Philadelphia A's. So why didn't they win the pennant? Because the A's played four fewer games and finished 92-56. The AL did not make up cancelled games in those days, so the Sox had to settle for second place. Guiding them this year was second year manager/centerfielder Fielder...

The Sox and Cubs both finished with winning records this year, with the Cubs coming in 13 games behind pennant winning New York.

The big news occured in the postseason. Most fans and press expected NL pennant winner New York Giants to challenge the reigning World Champion Boston Red Sox, who had again won the AL, for...

1903 City Series

Posted 02-19-2012 at 09:46 PM by TommyJohn (No!!Mary!!!)
Updated 02-19-2012 at 10:12 PM by TommyJohn

The birth of the Chicago City Series coincided with the peace treaty brokered between the established National League and the brand-new, upstart American League. While the first place winners in each league (Boston and Pittsburgh) met in a "World Series" to settle the issue of who was the better team, owner Charles Comiskey of the White Sox challenged owner James Hart of the Cubs (then called the "Colts") to an informal best-of-15 series for "bragging rights."
