By A Customer on February 5, 2003
Format: Hardcover
Temple University Press has published some notable team histories in this on-going series. The Sox Encyclopedia however, is at the top rung of the ladder for its completeness, quality of photos, and crisp writing. Even Cub fans are envious, considering how badly done the Cub book was, in comparison. Only a true believer and a died-in-the-wool fan could have produced such an epic labor of love as this -- 600 plus pages of facts, figures, trivia, stories and Sox folklore. Lindberg is controversial in his opinions. A lot of Sox fans don't agree with him, but few doubt his knowledge of team history. Fans of the South Side team who haven't read this book are really missing out on something. Lindberg concludes with the 1997 season. I hope there is an update in the works. No one writes books about the Sox these days, let's face it. But then again no one writes about the Sox like this guy either.

This is the single best book that I have ever read about the Chicago White Sox. This encyclopedia covers the years from the team's founding in 1900 through the 1996 season. This book fills a need since few books of quality have been written about the White Sox over the years.
It includes short biographies of over 100 players in Sox history and biographies of all the managers, general managers and owners as well. The encyclopedia also includes a year by year summary of all of the club's seasons. And the best part is that it is loaded with all sorts of statistics that should settle just about every argument about Sox history and lore that you have had with fellow fans.
One of the best things about this book is just how much better it is than the entry for the Chicago Cubs in the larger Temple University MLB Team History Series. Hopefully, there are plans for a revised and expanded version of this excellent work.
Highly recommended.
