The Chicago White Sox are a professional baseball team located in the south side of Chicago, Illinois. The White Sox are members of the Central Division in the Major League Baseball's American League. The White Sox are one of two major league clubs based in Chicago, the other being the Chicago Cubs of the National League. The club was established in 1900 and originally called the Chicago White Stockings, after the nickname abandoned by the Cubs, and the name was soon shortened to Chicago White Sox, believed to have been because the paper would shorten it to Sox in the headlines. The White Sox have won the World Series three times, the last time occurring in 2005.
