Publisher Comments:

A list of essential knowledge and experiences all fans of the Chicago White Sox must know and do in their lifetime, this book covers the team's long history all the way through the 2013 season. Most White Sox fans have taken in a game or two at U.S. Cellular Field, have seen highlights of a young Frank Thomas, and remember the team's 2005 World Series championship. But only real fans remember which player once took his pants off after sliding into first base, can name the opposing outfielder who was showered with beer during the 1959 World Series, or remember who hit the most home runs onto the roof of old Comiskey Park. This is the ultimate resource guide for true fans of Chicago's South Side team, whether a die-hard booster from the days of Billy Pierce or a new supporter of Paul Konerko and Chris Sale.

About the Author

Bob Vanderberg grew up in Chicagos west suburbs and attended his first White Sox game—a jarring ninth-inning loss to the Yankees—in 1954. He has been waiting ever since for that magical time when Chicago dominates the American League as New York has. Retired after nearly 40 years on the Chicago Tribunes sports staff, he is the author of five previous books, three of them on the White Sox. He lives in Lemont, Illinois.
