The Chicago White Sox were one of eight charter teams for the American League. They were established in 1900 and were originally known as the White Stockings. The name was shortened to White Sox after the paper had headlines referring to the team as 'Sox.'
Lifelong Chicago resident Andrew Rozdilsky performed as the unoffical mascot "Andy the Clown" from 1961 to 1991
The White Sox currently have a mascot named "SouthPaw"
