The Chicago White Sox are a major league baseball team from the south side of Chicago. They are also called the "South Siders," a reference to their location in Chicago in relation to the city's other major league team, the Cubs, who are based in Wrigleyville on the north side. They won the World Series in 2005, and 88 years before that, twice, in 1906 and 1917. The team originally formed in Iowa in 1894 as a minor league team called the Cornhuskers. Charles Comiskey purchased the team and moved them to Chicago in 1900 as the White Stockings. Four years later, they took their new and current name, the White Sox.
The team played in Comiskey Park from 1910 to 1990 until a new stadium was built in 1991. The new field was originally also called Comiskey Park, but it was renamed U.S. Cellular Field in 2003 and then Guaranteed Rate Field in 2016.
