2022 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 17

Tiffany Wintz/South Side Sox Luis Mieses is voted the overall No. 16 prospect. Who is the 17th-best player in the White Sox system?

Today in White Sox History: January 28

Manager Paul Richards didn’t want him, but Ferris Fain came to town on this day, 69 years ago, as the centerpiece of a five-player deal. A rare 1950s misstep for the front office brought in Ferris Fain, to no avail. 1901 The American League moves from minor-league status to the majors, admitting the Baltimore Orioles, Philadelphia A’s and Boston Americans to join the existing Washington Nationals, Cleveland Blues, Detroit Tigers, Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago White Sox.

Lockout Cryptosoxery #7
