It was on this date in 2005 that the White Sox played their first World Series game since 1959, winning a close one over the Astros, 5-3. Jose Contreras went seven innings, then Neal Cotts and Bobby Jenks recorded two scoreless innings with five of those six outs on strikeouts to close things out.
Ah, sweet postseason moments. In that game, the White Sox were also the beneficiary of two home runs, solo shots that I suppose one could argue were the difference in the score. Today, let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember other White Sox home runs of postseasons past. No, none of us remember those first two home runs in 1917 and 1919, but I reckon there’s a fair number of folks here who can remember the rest. In all there are 42 player entries: how many can you name? Good luck!
- I’ve allotted 15 minutes for completion attempts.
- For hints, I’ve provided the date of the game and the position that player fielded during the game.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:
- The most postseason home runs by a White Sox player over their career is 7.
- I suppose this is probably more random chance than anything else, but catcher has the second-most home runs from the positions on this list with 6 (behind first base, 12).
- 23 of these home runs have come at home, while the other 19 have come on the road.
