The Chicago White Sox were founded as the Chicago White Stockings - one of the American League's charter franchises - in 1901. They are one of the few franchises to have never relocated to another city or changed names.

The White Sox experienced immediate success winning the pennant in the American League's first season as a major league. The White Sox won another pennant in 1906 and advanced to the third World Series against the favored Chicago Cubs. The White Sox were led by future Hall of Fame pitcher Ed Walsh to a six game series victory.

The White Sox continued to acquire talented players over the next years and were back in the World Series by 1917. The White Sox defeated the New York Giants in six games behind the stellar pitching of Red Faber, who won three out of the four games he pitched in.

Two seasons later the White Sox once again represented the American League inthe World Series. The series is mostly remembered for the infamous Black Sox scanda that erupted, in which various Chicago players were accused of conspiring to purposely lose. The White Sox not only lost the series in eight games but many of the teams core players were banned from baseball for life, including "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.

Over the next few decades the White Sox would struggle to remain relevant despite having star players such as Luke Appling and Ted Lyons. Nevertheless, by the 1950s the franchise was on its way to recovering.

Finally, in 1959 the White Sox clinched their first pennant in over 40 years en rout to a World Series appearance against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The White Sox had a formidable team that included Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox and Ealry Wynn, all future Hall of Famers. Nevertheless, they lost the series in seven games.

Overall, the White Sox were one of the elite teams in the AL from 1951 to 1967 and they finished with a winning record in each of those seasons. More often than not, however, they finished in second place to the Yankees.

The 1959 World Series turned out to be the franchise's last World Series appearance until 2005. In 2005 Chicago faced the Houston Astros and dispacthed them in four games for the team's first World Series victory since 1917.
