ollowing the Black Sox Scandal and the banishment of eight players, the Chicago White Sox fell upon hard times. Within five years of the 1919 World Series, the White Sox had finished the season in last place. Charles Comiskey's dynasty team would not see another pennant winner before his death in 1931. It would not be until the "Go-Go Sox" played the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1959 that the White Sox would play in another World Series. In 2005, after an eighty-eight year drought, the Chicago White Sox have once again become champions of baseball.
 

In 1958 Bill Veeck became owner of the franchise and although he was successful in drawing large crowds to the ballpark with promotions such as baseball's smallest player Eddie Gaedel, an exploding scoreboard and disco demolition nite, the White Sox failed to bring a Championship to the city of Chicago. In 1981 a group headed by Jerry Reinsdorf purchased the team and within two years the Sox had won their first playoff birth in 24 years. In 1990 Comiskey Park was demolished and was replaced with Comiskey Park II. The Stadium was renamed Cellular Field in 2003.
