About Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox
was originally formed in
1893 as the Sioux City Cornhuskers in the state of Iowa, and there it became a franchise in the minor Western League. It, later on, moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota, in the year 1895 and was renamed to St. Paul Saints. In 1900, it went on to move to Chicago and was renamed to the Chicago White Stockings. However, the name did not last and was later reduced to the Chicago White Sox
; a name unchanged till today. It was during that time that the league was renamed as the American League. The same league went on to become the major league in the year 1901. During the first twenty years, the team was considered as one of the best in the league. It was in the year 1906 that the White Sox won the World Series. It was a feat it achieved with a team whose strategies were more defense-focused rather than attack-focused. As a result of this, they were dubbed as The Hitless Wonders
. In 1917, they won the World Series again.
The team went through quite a dark phase in its history up until the 1950s. The New York Yankees were to blame for as they were the force that pushed aside a bundle of weaker teams in their pursuit of entering the playoffs. The team did, however, go on and become the pennant winners in the year 1959. They had to endure another dark phase up until 2005 when they became pennant winners again. The team had to wait an agonizing eighty-eight years in order to win the World Series championship for the very first time. The championship came only a year after when the Boston Red Sox had broken their drought by winning the championship in 2004. In 2008, the Chicago White Sox
claimed their second American League Central Championship, twice in the past four years. They came in at second place in the 2010 season and as a result, have established themselves as the front-runners in challenging for the title for years to come.
