Overview

Eighty-eight years after their last World Series win, the Chicago White Sox made up for lost time by sweeping the Houston Astros to become the 2005 world champions of baseball. With 99 regular-season wins, the Sox brought the second-best record in baseball to the postseason. Only one loss to the Angels prevented a complete sweep in every phase of their postseason play to win with an impressive 11–1 record. Believe It! celebrates the White Sox’s championship season, its players, its manager, and its rich history. This book features the writing of Chicago Tribune columnists John Kass, Rick Morrissey, and Mike Downey, who provide a narrative of the season and World Series win. There are exclusive interviews with key contributors—manager Ozzie Guillen, slugger Paul Konerko, ace Mark Buerhle, and more—in which they talk about baseball and life with the Sox. And for the statistician fans, the not-to-be-missed numbers behind the season and throughout White Sox history are included.
