The Chicago White Sox team was enfranchised in 1894. However, they were known as the Sioux City Corn Huskers at that time. They later moved to St. Paul and finally settled on Chicago's South Side in 1900. The team was owned by Charles A. Comiskey who was the first baseman in his home town, Chicago. In 1900 the old American League formed, and Comiskey changed the team name to White Stockings. The White Stockings team was first managed by Clark C. Griffith, who nicknamed his players "Boy Wonders," and his team lived up to that name. That year, the White Sox won the American League Pennant.
The American League (a minor League up to that point) declared itself part of the Major Leagues in 1901 and the White Stockings won the very first A.L. Pennant..
Chicago Tribune Sports Writers immediately began calling the White Stockings the White Sox for short. The organization OFFICIALLY changed the name to White Sox before the 1904 season, making the Chicago White Sox the FIRST Sox team, as the Red Sox were known as the Boston Americans until 1908.
