Damn east coast bias! Too much emphasis on the Giants!

That first clip in particular is absolutely golden. Thanks a million, Fenway.

The clip on the the 59 clincher in Cleveland is wrong. The real DP was Aparicio stepping on 2nd and throwing to Klu for the last out. The DP they show is Luis throwing to Fox who relayed to Klu, that was earlier in the game. You can also see that the pitcher was Wynn with number 24, not Staley. Trust me on this, it is something I will never forget.

The DP they show was in the bottom of the 5th, check out the PBP.

What struck me about the 1959 clip in Cleveland was that photographers were on the field. While this was common in the 20's and 30's, I had no idea it was still allowed in 1959.

Default 1917 World Series

I've never seen these 1917 films before. Seeing them has made my day.

This whole site is an amazing find. There are over 350 Chicago related clips. Thanks Fenway.

I especially like the clip of the Chicago Cardinals playing football at Comiskey.

Thanks Fenway. Great clips of the 1917 World Series. I wonder who originally shot this footage? I imagine it must have been used for film news reels that were shown in movie theaters.

I always love that clip of Jungle Jim Rivera with the crazy hat on dancing in the clubhouse in Cleveland after the Sox clinched the pennant.

Met Jungle Jim at the Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club when I was working in the pro-shop there. We talked 1950s White sox baseball and then he went back to his car and brought back a picture of him at Comiskey that was taken in 1957 and he signed for me.

The upper deck looks like it was much bigger in 1917....was it rebuilt later?

Thats the same upper deck. It probably looks larger because it only went from 1st base to 3rd base up until 1926. After the 1926 season the park was double decked almost completely with only the small bleacher in CF.
I have a great book called Comiskey Park by Irwin Cohen with the whole history of Comiskey.
