In honor of actor Andy Garcia and his (unintentionally) hilarious reaction to Sofia (Mary Corleone) Coppola's death scene in "The Godfather, Part III."

1914 City Series

1914

White Sox 70-84, 6th, 30 GB
469,290

The White Sox played baseball year-round in 1914, for this was the year that the team embarked on a world tour, part of Charles Comiskey's attempt to internationalize the sport of baseball. The team left after the 1913 season ended and spent the entire offseason playing in such ports of call as Japan, Australia, Egypt, Ceylon and Italy. Their opponents for these games was John McGraw's New York Giants. One highlight of the...

1914 City Series II

The Series

Once again, the White Sox would be pioneers in baseball history, becoming the first team to fall behind 3 games to 1 and rally to win a postseason series. This would not happen in World Series play until the Pittsburgh Pirates would rally against the Washington Senators in 1925.

The Cubs and Sox traded wins in Games 1 and 2, then the Cubs took Game 3 and rallied in the 9th to take Game 4. That's when the Sox kicked it into gear, taking Game 5 3-1 and putting...

1913

White Sox 78-74, 5th, GB 17.5
644,501

New faces dominated the scene on the South Side this year-Ray Schalk took over as full-time catcher at age 20, Morrie Rath held down 2nd base, and the Sox acquired talented 1st baseman Hal Chase from the New York Yankees. Chase had been in the league since 1905 and was constantly and openly suspected of cavorting with unseemly characters and tanking plays and games. For some reason, Comiskey wanted him anyway, believing...

1912

White Sox 78-76, 4th, 28 GB
602,241

The White Sox jumped out of the starting gate in 1912, going 23-6 in the first few weeks of play. Youth and inexperience took over after that, and the team went 55-70 the rest of the way to finish up at 78-76. It was good enough for the first division-barely-as they managed to place 4th. New additions to the team this year were Buck Weaver, Ray Schalk and Eddie Cicotte.

Pitcher Cicotte of the Red Sox had fought...
