Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - NEWS -

To be a White Sox fan is to know the high­est of highs, the low­est of lows and all points in be­tween. “The Chicago Tri­bune Book of the Chicago White Sox: A Decade-byDecade His­tory” touches all those bases and cov­ers more than a cen­tury of South Side base­ball: “Black Jack” and “Jun­gle Jim.” The “Hit­less Won­ders” and “Win­ning Ugly.” Air-raid sirens and ex­plod­ing score­boards. “Old Aches and Pains” and the “Big Hurt.” At over 300 pages, it’s filled with great fea­tures and pro­files, plus stun­ning im­ages from the Tri­bune’s award-win­ning pho­to­jour­nal­ists. Get a copy for your­self — and maybe another one for that diehard Sox fan in your life.
