The Hitless Wonder White Sox Beating the Cubs in the 1906 World Series

Here are a few cartoons, pictures, and coverage from the Chicago Tribune of how the White Sox beat the Cubs in the 1906 World Series, the only one to feature the two Chicago teams in a struggle for the title. The Cubs had gone 116-36 in the regular season: 23 more wins than the White Sox, who went 93-58. The images are pretty fuzzy, but after all, they come from microfilm of a 100+ year-old newspaper.

  1. Great story and an interesting perspective on the only time the Cubs faced the Sox in a World Series. I can only imagine how the media would handle it today.
