The White Sox were dubbed the Black Sox after the controversial claim that the White Sox "threw" (purposely lost) the 1919 World Series.
For the first three years (1901-1903) of the franchise, the White Sox were known as the White Stockings. The name was changed to White Sox for the 1904 season.
The name White Sox came from sports writers from the Chicago Tribune who used the term "Sox" as a shortened version of their original name: The Chicago White Stockings. The White Sox are one of the original teams of the American League founded in 1901. and the White Stockings was changed to the White Sox by 1904. The Red Sox were originally the Boston Americans and did not adopt the name Red Sox until 1908. Therefore, The White Sox are the ORIGINAL Sox team. Not The Red Sox.
The Chicago White Sox received their name after the white stockings that the players wore; in fact, in 190, the team shortened their name from White Stockings to White Sox, as the local newspapers had shortened it for headline-writing purposes.
