    The 1917 Chicago White Sox dominated the American League with a record of 100–54. The 100 wins is a club record that still stands.[1] Their offense was first in runs scored while their pitching staff led the league with a 2.16 ERA.

    Facing the New York Giants in the 1917 World Series, the team clinched the series in six games, thanks in large part to the workhorse efforts of Eddie Cicotte and Red Faber. It would be the team's last world championship until 2005.

    1917 World Series

    Main article: 1917 World Series

    There were accusations of this series not being completely "on the level," especially after the Black Sox scandal of 1919.[citation needed] The most notable play involved Heinie Zimmerman of the Giants chasing Eddie Collins across home plate in the deciding game. Zimmerman was later banned from organized baseball for throwing games.
