Comiskey Park's Last World Series

Baseball season is upon us and hope springs eternal. In anticipation of a season of many wins, author and sports historian Charles Billington returns to the library on Thursday, April 5th at 7:00 to discuss Comiskey Park's Last World Series. The 1959 Chicago White Sox were the South Side’s first pennant winners in 40 years, but their success played in front of a tragic backdrop: one of Chicago’s first families locked in a bitter legal battle for control of a prized heirloom, the team itself. Charles will offer a film analysis of the 1959 World Series and discuss the legal and business history of the White Sox and the baseball industry during this golden era. Batterrrrrrrr up!
