The 1959 World Series featured the Chicago White Sox versus the Los Angeles Dodgers. Known as the “Go-Go Sox”, they were last in the American League in home runs but led in stolen bases, fielding percentage, and the lowest team ERA. This series marked the first games ever played on the west coast, first game to exceed 90,000 in attendance and more than 400,000 fans. This was also the first game where neither team’s pitcher pitched a complete game. The Sox lost to the Dodgers in a 4-2 game series.
