THE WHITE SOX ARE THE FALL CLASSIC WINNERS AFTER 88 YEARS


Coming off their first World Series title after 1917, it is a time for the fans, the team, and the nation to feel jubilant, to hit the streets for a ticker-tape parade and rally. Just a year ago, the same story line awestruck baseball when the Red Sox swept St. Louis to capture their first title in 86 years. The victory of these two teams has left only one team with a similar classic streak of futility - the Cubs, who are the losers since 1908. Now the White Sox won’t be anymore remembered for Shoeless Joe Jackson's Black Sox scandal. World Series MVP Jermaine Dye broke a scoreless tie with a single in the eighth inning as the Chicago White Sox ended an 88-year championship drought with a 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros, completing a four-game sweep. The White Sox followed the same format they did all season - dominant pitching, timely hitting and solid defense.
