Good morning!

As Major League Baseball nears its traditional halfway point of the season, the All-Star Game and its surrounding events are once again upon us. I, for one, am looking forward more to the home run derby than the game itself, if only to see if Robert, Jr. –or anyone else in the field, for that matter– can beat the man made for the derby, Pete Alonso.

Today, we look at present and past White Sox selections to the All-Star Game, going back fifty-three years to 1970. With just one selection to this year’s game, the total number of names to be guessed is 103. How many can you get? Good luck!

Quiz Parameters

  • I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts.
  • For hints, I’ve provided the year and the position of the player.

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

  • Pitcher has been the position most often represented by the White Sox over the years as it appears in 41 instances on this list.
  • Two positions have been represented the fewest times: second and third base have each only had 3 players appear since 1970.

103/103 with 1:08 left, but it is only because of Ted’s past versions of this quiz that I was able to get a couple of the relievers from earlier this century.

Here’s hoping there is a time when Sox fans can enjoy something like the 2006 game before we all expire.


The only way we can enjoy the 2006 game is by having a year like 2005- which probably won’t happen until Jerry/Rick/Kenny are gone.


103/103 with 00:52 left. Some surprising names on the list, and also some surprises that didn’t make the list.

Right Size Wrong Shape

97/103. Missed 2 obvious ones, and three that were before my time. The other one is the one that I get wrong every year, one of the 2013 pitchers. I know who it is, and I can always remember that it starts with a

, but I can never remember his name.


Criminal that Cease didn’t get the nod last year.
