The series against the Cubs would be the first intra-city World Series Championship. The Cubs would have most of the attention because they seemed to be the better team with the better record but, the White Sox ended up winning the series 4 games to 2. In 1917 the White Sox would once again have powerful pitching that would help them win a franchise record 100 games. The White Sox would play the New York Giants in the World Series Championship and win the second and last of the 20th century 4 games to 2.

A Week in Arlington Having success isn’t always easy, especially when nothing but the State tournament is considered success. Some years, it almost feels as if it is impossible because your competition is just too good. Even if the going gets tough, never give up on your team. Anything can happen on any given day, as I learned during my trip to Arlington, WA. In the summer of 2011, the Hazel Dell Little League Junior League All-star team and I began our season against North Clark Little League, a team playing out of Yacolt, WA.
It took a few years for him to learn the ropes in the major leagues, but by 1960 Clemente was a dominant player in professional baseball, helping lead the Pirates to win both the National League pennant and the World Series. Shortly after Clemente joined the Pirates, he chose No. 21 for his uniform. Twenty-one was the total number of letters in the name–Roberto Clemente Walker.

Sara Gannon Professor Levy English 101 - WB 18 April 2014 History of America’s baseball team, the New York Yankees The New York Yankees are hands down the most successful baseball team to date. They are a great team by the factoring in winning 27 World Series games, and having undoubtedly the best players to ever play in the league and wear their famous pinstripe uniforms. From handling different ownerships through-out the years, and being the headline of the newspaper, they sure can manage everything that is thrown at them.
