Sporcle Saturday: Managers

With the White Sox officially in search of a new manager, it’s time to take a look back at the managers of White Sox past. However, as this managerial search will be conducted by the White Sox, there are of course rumors that would lead to me not ever having to update this particular Sporcle. Or at least not for a few more years. Time will tell.

Anyway, today’s Sporcle asks you to name every manager in franchise history who managed the team for at least 50 games. That gives you 35 names to recall: how many can you get? Good luck!

Quiz Parameters

  • I’ve allotted 15 minutes for completion attempts.
  • For hints, I’ve provided the manager’s length of tenure, ordered chronologically (as much as possible), and included their winning percentage.

Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:

  • Ed Walsh managed the White Sox for 3 games in 1924, for whom he was serving as a coach at the time.
  • Other names on the official list that didn’t make my 50-games cut: Doug Rader, Bill Adair, Les Moss, and Don Cooper.
  • From that same official list: 11 names have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

30/35. A good trick for this quiz, if you’re not sure about the pre-Go-Go Sox era,

is to type in names of famous players.


Tough quiz I got 23. So did boomer. He got two guys I missed in my dads lifetime

Marion and gutteridge
i got two all time great Sox managers that he somehow missed
dykes and Gleason

Right Size Wrong Shape

It’s good parenting not to fill his head with knowledge of Terry Bevington.


24/35. I thought I did about as good as I could, except I missed the guy at the end of 1978.
