Chicago White Sox Franchise History:
The Chicago White Sox were established in 1894 and were one of the charter members of the American League in 1901. The White Sox were a strong team during the early years of their existence and claimed the 1906 and 1917 World Series Championships. However, in 1919 the White Sox were torn apart by the Black Sox scandal which saw a number of leading members of the teams throwing matches. All players involved in the scandal were banned for life and the White Sox took a number of seasons to recover. During the 1950s and 1960s the White Sox were a strong side but couldn't make the playoffs because of the dominance of the New York Yankees. They finally returned to the MLB Playoffs in 1983 but it wouldn't be until 2005 when they won their first World Series Championship since 2005. The White Sox have remained competitive in recent seasons and will be pushing for a wildcard berth in 2013.
Chicago White Sox Offensive Star: Alex Rios
Alex Rios was selected with the nineteenth overall pick of the 1999 MLB draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. Rios made his MLB debut in 2004 and had his breakout season in 2006 when he was selected for the MLB All-Star game. The outfielder continued his stellar form in 2007 and received the Fielding Bible Award for his efforts. After a poor 2009 season Rios was put on waivers by the Blue Jays and signed by the Chicago White Sox. Rios was close to being cut by the White Sox after a poor 2011 season but rebounded in 2012 to be the franchises most valuable player. Rios will be hoping to build on this momentum in 2013.
Chicago White Sox Defensive Star: Chris Sale
Chris Sale was drafted with the thirteenth overall pick of the 2010 MLB draft. Sale wasted little time in the minor leagues and became the first player from his draft to make his debut in the Majors. The left hander quickly became the White Sox's leading pitcher and in 2012 was awarded for his stellar form with selection for the MLB All-Star game. Sale is only twenty-three years of age and has the potential to developer into the leading pitcher in the MLB.
Chicago White Sox Manager: Robin Ventura
Robin Venutra was named Chicago White Sox Manager in 2012 returning to the franchise where he made his named as a player. Ventura's first season in charge of the White Sox was a success with the franchise improving their record with Ventura named as one of the finalists for the American League Manager of the Year Award. Ventura is charged with returning the White Sox to the playoffs for the first time since 2008 in the competitive American League Central Division.
