Default Sporcle Saturday: Best Players to Wear a Sox Uniform

Name the 44 players to compile a bWAR above 50 for their career to have spent times with the White Sox. You have 15 minutes.


I scored 34/44. I missed a bunch of the one season wonders.

33/44... feel like I should have been able to get 3 others but I can forgive myself on the rest. Two of them I don't recall ever hearing of... with the Sox or anyone else.

Wow, I can't believe I forgot about the ex-Indians Hall of Famer who played in the infield for the Sox late in his career. No, not that one, the earlier one.

35 correct. Could not for the life of me remember the 93 pitcher or the 2002 outfielder. I would have maxed at about 37.

Only got 26/44, but only missed one from my own lifetime, the pitcher from 1993. Honestly don't remember him being on that team, even though I was old enough (6) to know a lot of the players that year.

38/44 I couldn't think of the name of the tiger great that played 1b 58-59.
