One last thing before the holidays. Mauricio Rubio (@MRubio52) put this graphic on his Tumblr site yesterday, noting that Paul Konerko is the only White Sock remaining from the 2005 World Series-winning team. So I made a chart looking at the rest of that season’s White Sox players.
The 1906 Chicago Cubs, 116-36. Lost WS 4-2 to the 93-58 White Sox.
Harry Caray, Take Me Out to the Ball Game, Comiskey Park, 1980.
Major League Baseball Barbie, 1998
7 April, 1994 exhibition game: White Sox vs. Cubs. Featuring: Harry Caray interview w/ Michael Jordan, who went 2-for-5 w/ 2 RBI.
W. Drawn using the iPad app, Brushes. The reference photo I used was taken on my only visit (so far) to Chicago, when the Cubs beat the Braves 3-2 in the 11th inning on a walk-off hit-by-pitch. June 12, 2008.
The Boston Reds and Chicago Whites begin a three-game set this evening. Perfect opportunity to take a look at the Soxes.
