Overview

The White Sox Encyclopedia is a comprehensive history of one of the more controversial teams in the American league - the trials, tribulations, and moments of glory of a ballclub interwoven into the fabric of the South Side Irish community that supported it through years of crowning glory, the disgrace of the devastating scandal, and the long, losing seasons that were to follow. This book brings together, for the first time, ten decades of baseball on the South Side and will be a wealth of information for White Sox fans, sports mavens, and trivia buffs alike. It includes: 700 photographs, 16 pages in full color; complete statistics through the 1996 season, including hitting streaks and ERA's, box scores, trades, and an all-time roster of managers, players, and position leaders; season-by-season descriptions; game highlights; over 100 player profiles from Tommie Agee to Richie Zisk and all the great stars past and present; the managerial strategies, the personalities, the honors, and the milestones; description of unforgettable moments and poignant memories; a chapter on the City Series, by Biart Williams; and an immense treasure trove of little known facts and surprising anecdotes.
