TitleWhite Sox team of 1917
DescriptionCaption: "This is the White Sox team of 1917, champions of the American League and winners over the New York Giants for the world's title. In the center and forefront is Manager Rowland. Behind him to the right stands Kid Gleason, then coach, now manager. With the exception of Dick Kerr and a number of utility players and late-comers, the group includes every member of the 1919 team--the combination that the Old Roman has pronounced the greatest he has ever owned or managed. In front are those old mainstays, Claude Williams, Joe Jackson, Chic Gandill, Ray Schajk, Eddie Collins, Eddie Cicotte, Nemo Leibold and Buck Weaver, who have done so much to keep the white hose spotless. The inserts, reading from left to right, are: Harry Grabiner, secretary; Mr. Comiskey, owner, and Lou Comiskey, treasurer. The eastern wing of the mammoth White Sox grandstand serves as background."
