Children's LiteratureShoeless Joe Jackson, Minnie Minoso and Frank Thomas are just three of the names baseball fans mention when discussing the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox are known as the other team in Chicago, overshadowed by the Chicago Cubs. Yet, in their history, they have been more successful. The Chicago White Sox are also known for their 1919 World Series where several players admitted to throwing games to the Cincinnati Reds, allowing the Reds to win the series. In this volume of the "Great Sports Teams" series, John Grabowski covers the early days of the White Sox franchise up to their status as the other Chicago baseball team. As with other books of the series, after the history of the team, the author discusses the players and personnel influential in the team's history. The end of the book contains a further reading section, bibliography, index and timeline of White Sox moments. This volume makes an excellent addition to any middle or high school library non-fiction section. 2003, Lucent Books, Ages 12 to 18.
