ABSTRACT
This article reports on the victory of the Chicago White Sox at the World Series in October 2005. The team won the World Series for the first time since 1917. For years, fans thought the Sox were doomed to lose because of a scandal in 1919. That year, Sox players threw the Series, or agreed to lose it for money. The Sox broke the curse this year, beating the Houston Astros in four games.
