Jump to: navigation, search

The 1906 World Series featured a crosstown matchup between the Chicago Cubs, who had posted the highest regular-season win total (116) in major league history, and the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox, known as the "Hitless Wonders" after finishing with the worst team batting average (.230) in the American League, beat the Cubs in 6 games for one of the greatest upsets in Series history. It was the first appearance in the World Series for both teams, and the first of three in a row for the Cubs. The White Sox would not reappear in the World Series until the 1917 World Series. The Cubs home field was the West Side Grounds, while the White Sox played at South Side Park. It was the first World Series appearance for the Cubs' famous infield trio of Joe Tinker (shortstop), Johnny Evers (second base), and Frank Chance (first base). The trio hit a combined 9-for-59 in the series. Two future Hall-of-Fame pitchers also appeared: Mordecai Brown for the Cubs and Ed Walsh for the White Sox. Sadly, this legendary pair never pitched against each other in any game of the series. The Cubs were managed by their first baseman Frank Chance. The White Sox were managed by one of their outfielders, Fielder Jones. See also: 1905 in sports, 1907 in sports and the list of years in sports.
