Chicago White Sox Tickets
Chicago White Sox Tickets
The Chicago White Sox, founded in 1900, was one of the teams that constituted the original American League. Although they have often been overshadowed by their rivals on the North Side, the Chicago Cubs, the White Sox have been the more successful of the two teams, winning three World Series titles. However, the White Sox may be best known for the notorious Black Sox scandal, where several players on the team conspired with gamblers to purposefully lose the 1919 World Series. The team was able to survive the scandal, but it took them another 40 years to return to the World Series, which they lost. The team finally broke its championship drought by sweeping the Houston Astros in the 2005 World Series.
U.S. Cellular Field, Home to the Chicago White Sox
After 81 years at the old Comiskey Park, the Chicago White Sox moved into their new digs, U.S. Cellular Field, in 1991. Located in Chicago's South Side Armour Square community, U.S. Cellular Field sits directly across the street from the old Comiskey Park which was demolished and made into a parking lot. The park has several sculptures of White Sox greats old and new, including Carlton Fisk, Harold Baines, Charles Comiskey, and Frank Thomas. The stadium has appeared in such baseball films as Major League II and Rookie of the Year.
Chicago White Sox and the American League Central
The Chicago White Sox is one of five teams that makes up the American League Central division, including the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, and Minnesota Twins. The team has captured the division title three times since moving from the AL West. In its storied history, the Sox have also won the American League pennant six times, resulting in three World Series championships. Their rivalry with cross-town team, the Chicago Cubs of the National League Central division, is well-known throughout Major League Baseball. Now that interleague play is scheduled, the two teams get to meet regularly each year, making baseball in Chi-Town all the more exciting.
Chicago White Sox 2012 Team Outlook
The Chicago White Sox thought that 2011 was their year, so they spent over $120 million with the hopes of getting back to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. However, all they got in return for the money was a middling 79 wins and a plethora of unconscionable contracts. For instance, Adam Dunn, who is still owed $44 million over the next three years, had one of the worst seasons by any player in baseball history. The team also lost their passionate manager Ozzie Guillen, who is now coaching the Miami Marlins. With little payroll flexibility, the White Sox seem to be stuck in a state of limbo that will extend through 2012.
