Derek Sanderson Jeter was born June 26, 1974 in Pequannock, New Jersey.
This series was played during World War 1, and prior to the first game at Comiskey Park the White Sox played the Star Spangled Banner to honor the troops. This would be the first time the Star Spangled Banner was played prior to a game and would become a common practice till this day. In 2005 the White Sox were a different team from what they have been in the past. They had powerful pitching and had the hitters to go with it.
