Stumbling Upon The Windy City Series

While looking for something completely unrelated, I stumbled upon pictures from the 1906 World Series between the Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Cubs. I also ran across a picture from during the regular season of the White Sox at South Side Park. Enjoy!

September 23, 1906. The New York Highlanders are at bat (in the dark uniforms) and the Chicago White Sox are in the field (in the light uniforms).

During Game 1 of the 1906 World Series, at the Cubs' West Side Grounds, Frank Chance slides safely into first as the White Sox first baseman, Jiggs Donahue, tries to apply the tag. October 9, 1906.

After Game 1, the crowd surrounds Nick Altrock, the winning pitcher (who threw a complete game four hitter), on the Cubs' field, while police protect him. It was customary, in those days, for the crowd to walk across the field while exiting after the game.

Frank Isbell of the Chicago White Sox, sliding into first on a pickoff attempt at South Side Park. The Chicago Cubs' first baseman Frank Chance tries to apply the tag.

After the box office was shut down, these fans were without tickets to the sixth and final game of the 1906 World Series on October 14, 1906, outside of South Side Park.

Good stuff man. Not too many MLB teams left that have the same team name today and are in the same city today as they were in 1906.

Not just the same city, but in the same neighborhood. The Sox have played on Chicago's south side since their inception.
