    The 1969 Chicago White Sox season was the team's 69th season in the major leagues, and its 70th season overall. They finished with a record 68–94, good enough for fifth place in the newly established American League West, 29 games behind the first-place Minnesota Twins.

    The White Sox nearly left Chicago in 1969. White Sox owner Arthur Allyn, Jr. considered overtures from Bud Selig and other Milwaukee interests to move the club to County Stadium.[1] Instead, he sold to his brother, John. The newly established Seattle Pilots would move there a year after their inaugural season.

    Move to Milwaukee?

    In 1969, the White Sox schedule in Milwaukee was expanded to include 11 home games (one against every other franchise in the American League at the time). Although those games were attended by slightly fewer fans (198,211 fans, for an average of 18,019) they represented a greater percentage of the total White Sox attendance than the previous year – over one-third of the fans who went to Sox home games in 1969 did so at Milwaukee County Stadium (in the remaining 59 home dates in Chicago, the Sox drew 391,335, for an average of 6,632 per game). Bud Selig felt this fan support lent legitimacy to his quest for a Milwaukee franchise, and he went into the 1969 owners meetings with high hopes.[citation needed]
