I am looking for information on the Crosstown Sox / Cubs series-
Stats, History, Team Records, etc....
Any info, websites, links, anecdotes, etc... would be appreciated.

I can give two sources of information about the old Chicago City Series (which is what I assume you're asking about). Neither, to my knowledge, is on the Internet. They involve good ol' fashioned print.

The Chicago Historical Society publishes a magazine, called Chicago History, that once had a very thorough article giving the history of the old city series (which was a best of seven series between the two teams played simultaneous to the World Series in years when neither Chicago team made it). I can't remember the date when that article appeared, but I'm sure the museum's people could figure it out easily enough.

Also, The White Sox Encyclopedia by Rich Lindberg includes a separate chapter providing stories and statistics from all the various games our Sox have played against that Mickey Mouse outfit from the North Side.

Hope that helps.
