Chicago White Sox
The 2015 MLB season saw 76 wins for the Chicago White Sox, which put them in fourth place in the Central Division of the American League. Though this may not have been their strongest season, it was an improvement over the 2014 MLB season, when they won 73 games. They’ve been climbing ever since 2012, the last season when they won over 80 games. After the 2015 MLB season, the Chicago White Sox are sure to strive to continue their climb back toward 2012 numbers.
The Chicago White Sox were originally called the Sioux City Cornhuskers, until 1894, when their name changed to the St. Paul Saints. 1900 brought another name change—they became the White Stockings. It wasn’t until 1906 that they were first known as the Chicago White Sox—and they won the World Series that year. Since then, they’ve won the World Series two other times (1917 and 2005). They’ve also won six pennants and five division titles.
The Chicago White Sox play at US Cellular Field—and have since 1991. This is their fourth ballpark, and it’s located just south of Armour Square Park in Chicago, IL. Only a couple of blocks away from the Illinois Institute of Technology, US Cellular Field is surrounded by a number of lodgings and restaurants. The park is easily accessible by car and public transportation. US Cellular Field is also home to nine sculptures of figures important to the history of the team.
The 2016 Chicago White Sox season kicks off with the team’s first regular game against the Oakland Athletics, against whom they won 5 out of 7 games last season.
