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.

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.

The White Sox were known as the White Stockings from 1901-1903. The name was shortened to White Sox in 1904 so newspapers could fit the name in their headlines.

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.
