October 15, 1917 - The Sox win their second World Series title beating the New York Giants four games to two. Future Hall Of Famer Eddie Collins hits .409 with pitcher Urban "Red" Faber, another future Hall Of Famer, winning three games (and losing one!)

Afterwards a young federal judge and White Sox fan, named Kenesaw Mountain Landis sends a telegram congratulating the Sox for a job well done. The telegram read, ‘We did a fine job today...we disposed of the Giants.’

-----

Considering the discussion surrounding Landis and who he was a fan of, I note this comment (i.e. telegram's wording) comes from White Sox noted historian Rich Lindberg.
