History of the Crosstown Classic

The two Chicago baseball teams have been harsh rivals since the turn of the 20th century, when team owner Charles Comiskey moved his St. Paul, Minnesota Saints to Chicago — later to become the Chicago White Sox. Since then, the two teams have met a total of 138 times in the regular season. The White Sox have won 73 of those matchups, while the Cubs have won the other 65 games.
With the Chicago White Sox representing the American League and the Chicago Cubs representing the National League of the MLB, the two teams’ only chance to play each other in the playoffs would be in the World Series. This has occurred just once when the two bitter rivals met in the 1906 World Series. The 1906 World Series would mark the first time in MLB history that two teams from the same city would meet in the championship series. It was the White Sox who inevitably won the 1906 World Series, clinching the series with four wins to the Cubs’ two wins — despite the Cubs being heavy favorites. The Cubs were favorites because they won 116 games in the 1906 regular season compared to the White Sox, who won only 93 games that year.

The rivalry has only grown since then and has divided the city of Chicago into fans of either the North Side Cubs or the South Side White Sox. One of the most unforgettable moments in the rivalry came in 2006 when the catchers of both teams, A.J. Pierzynski and Michael Barrett, initiated a brawl at home plate after Pierzynski had “run over” Barrett while trying to reach home plate. Barrett would throw a punch in response to Pierzynski slapping the plate — which would lead to both benches joining the melee. The incident would lead to four players being ejected. If the Cubs vs. White Sox rivalry wasn’t already filled with tension, the 2006 melee elevated the crosstown rivalry to new heights.

When the interleague play began in 1997, the city series would take shape. It wasn’t until 2010 that the Crosstown Cup was introduced and given to the team who won the majority of the regular season matchups. The Crosstown Cup continues to be hotly contested to this day and is a heavily anticipated event in Chicago. In the 2022 season, the White Sox would take home the Crosstown Cup by beating the Cubs three out of the four times.

Where Do the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox Play?
