1917 - World Series Winner 1917
In the 1917 World Series, the Chicago White Sox beat the New York Giants four games to two. The Series was played against the backdrop of World War I, which dominated the American newspapers that year and next. The strong Chicago White Sox club had finished the 1917 season with a 100–54 record: their first and only one-hundred-win season in franchise history as of 2014. The Sox’s next World Series winner in 2005 would finish the regular season with a 99–63 record.
