About This File
Because you asked...
The Chicago White Sox are probably the most misnomer-ed team in MLB.
Case in point, these guys are called "White Sox:"
But these guys are called "Black Sox:"
Also, the third guy from the left, who is clearly wearing leather coverings on his feet, was called "Shoeless."
Accurate in lower-body wear this franchise is not.
You know the story. You've seen the movie.
The 1919 White Sox were a stellar collection of baseball talent, a mix of the motley superstars returning from WWI and some great, clean-cut guys Charles Comiskey acquired in the interim. Problem is, they all didn't get along so well, and some of the less clean-cut guys, who were making very little compared to the players who had joined since they left, jumped on 1st baseman Chick Gandil's plan to throw the World Series. Among the guys thrown out of baseball after the throwers got caught was "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, one of the best young players in the game. Kennesaw Mountain Landis, baseball's first commissioner and a guy who is very unlikely to be found in heaven, decided that those implicated, even Buck Weaver, who refused to take part in the fix, and Joe Jackson, who teammates admit was not part of it (they gave his name to gamblers to increase their claim), would never be seen in a Major League park again.
I made three versions of this: Home, Away, and Home alt:
- uniform_chw_home.iff = Pinstriped Home
- uniform_chw_away.iff = pinstriped grays
- uniform_chw_alt_1.iff = no pinstripes home
To use them, BACK UP YOUR FILES, and then place the .iff files in this zip in your folder.
I also included the 1917-1918 flag patches worn during WWI (the White Sox kept wearing them well into 1919 because they didn't get new uniforms until the middle of the season). I could have made 100, when you take into account all the DIY changes to buttons and whatnot that photos of this era showed. Apparently, Comiskey was too cheap to have the uniforms cleaned or repaired. Example (note the black button replacement).
Remember, please use these kits responsibly. Though you may look awesome wearing these, that does not make it okay for the Wrong Sox to ever, ever win.
Think of the kittens.
