My cousin is a die-hard Sox fan who is doing a college presentation. He chose the topic "Why the White Sox are better than the Cubs." He's conducting major research.

1.Can anyone tell me what all-time record for Sox-Cubs games since interleague play began?

2. Does anyone know the all-time series record for the Windy City Classic, when the Sox and Cubs played exhibition games?

Thanks a lot!

EDIT:

Since when is "why the Sox are better than the Cubs" an acceptable topic for a college presentation? Next up, "my dad is stronger than your dad."

The Windy City Classic went from 1985-95, and the White Sox were
undefeated with two ties. I believe the Cubs have a slight edge in the
"Boys Benefit" Game, played in the 1950's and '60's.

The White Sox also have an edge in the "City Series" which was played from
1903-42. I believe their all-time series record is 18-6-1.

The age old question is, "what if these two teams met in the World Series?" Well, it already happened in 1906 and the Sox won 4 games to 2. And that was the Cubs team that still has the major league record for wins (tied with 2001 Seattle team.)

So as I see it, the Cubs put out the best team in Major League history and still couldn't beat the White Sox.

Case closed.

Well, the presentation/speech is naturally more complicated than that, but this is the gist of it.

Thanks for the helpful responses!

The White Sox are 152-104 against the Cubs all-time. This includes the 1906 World Series that we won, all of the exhibition games played throughout baseball history, and the interleague games played since 1997.

Tell your "cousin" that major research doesn't consist of asking the crackheads at WSI stuff. :D:

Don't forget to mention that college work should be done by one's own self. Whatever happened to that? And that topic...bla, retitle it or something.

Can we really use the windy city classic as comparison. I mean, Michael Jordan played in 1 or 2 of those for us

I thought he drove in the winning run of the game, he smoked a double down the 3B line off Cubs reliever Chuck Crim. I've got that game on VHS somewhere in my collection.

I saw something interesting on another website about the 1912 City Series.
The series started off with two ties, then the Cubs jumped out to a 3-0
lead. The White Sox came back to win the next four. Pretty cool, even if
it was a meaningless exhibition series. So long before Boston did it, the
White Sox did it. Too bad it doesn't count, but it is still a fun fact.

I can see the Tribune headlines if something like that happened in a city
series today:

CUBS BLOW 3-0 LEAD; LOSE SERIES TO CHICAGO

April 29, 1985- A new yearly tradition is established in the first annual "Crosstown Classic" charity game matching the Sox and Cubs. Down through the years both teams played each other on and off in Spring training or during an open date in the regular season. This is the first time both teams agree to play on a yearly basis with a corporate sponsor (Busch Beer). The game alternates between Comiskey Park and Wrigley Field and is played every year through 1995 (Because of the labor impasse the teams played two games that season.) The Sox win the opener at Comiskey Park 7-4 but itís only the start of a remarkable run. The two teams play a total of 12 games and the Sox never lose!!!!! They go 10-0-2 during that time period. After 1995, the series is dropped. Itís never publicly explained why, but reports persisted that the cancellation of the series was at the Cubs request.

Michael Jordan played in the 1994 game at Wrigley Field hitting a 9th inning double to tie the game. That was one of the two games, the other was 1988 that ended in a stalemate.

As I recall, Steve Lyons pitched in the 1988 tie game. I think it went 14 innings and Lyons played everywhere as a stunt.

College work also consists of going to the bar and having one hell of a good time! :gulp:

Why not use a resource like this to help give you more time to party?? Not to mention this sort of info can be found a lot more easily at a place like this rather than searching for hours over the internet...

Yup, it was Otto. I also have it on tape. I've mentioned this before a few years back but it was hilarious to hear Harry Carrey call a young Mike Sirotka, Mike Sirotika...

Steve Lyons played in all nine positions during the 1990 game played at Wrigley Field.

The Sox won that one thanks to home runs from Dan Pasqua and Ron Karkovice. The game ended when Dave Gallagher threw out the potential tying run at home plate. The play by play from Harry was a classic (the game was shown via WGN-TV) 'here's the throw...he's out at the plate, the game is over. (silence...)'

LOL I may have to rewatch that tape!
