The Cubs and the White Sox

In essence, it isn't fair to compare Chicago and Tampa baseball. Longevity is one reason Chicago is unique and the Cubs-Sox fan rivalry so intense. This was illustrated in the seventh inning of a Cubs-Sox game on July 7, 2000.

Beginning with the premise that there is no other rivalry in team sports like that between the Cubs and the White Sox this work traces the history of the antagonism (and, at times, open hostility) between the fans of the two clubs. Of special interest is the baseball culture that is fostered in Chicago, as well as a recounting of the memorable on-field moments between the two teams.

A list of essential knowledge and experiences all fans of the Chicago White Sox must know and do in their lifetime, this book covers the team's long history all the way through the 2013 season. Most White Sox fans have taken in a game or two at U.S. Cellular Field, have seen highlights of a young Frank Thomas, and remember the team's 2005 World Series championship. But only real fans remember which player once took his pants off after sliding into first base, can name the opposing outfielder who was showered with beer during the 1959 World Series, or remember who hit the most home runs onto the roof of old Comiskey Park. This is the ultimate resource guide for true fans of Chicago's South Side team, whether a die-hard booster from the days of Billy Pierce or a new supporter of Paul Konerko and Chris Sale.

From the genesis of baseball in the 1840s, when so-called “kranks” cheered the teams of their choice, fans have been an ever-present component of the sport. As the number of fans has increased over the years, their influence has increased proportionally. Following the evolution of the game and its fans over more than a century, this book examines the role fans have played in the formation of modern baseball and the part the sport has played in the lives of its devotees. How have fans influenced, reacted to, or been affected by baseball’s changes through history? How do fans determine player popularity? Are there famous fans—and how do they manifest that interest? How has the evolution of baseball in the media, including newspapers, radio, and television, affected the fan base? The answers to these questions and more give a lively feel to this baseball history from a fan’s perspective. The final chapter sums up the fan’s importance to the sport of baseball.

The 2012 season of the Chicago White Sox began with few expectations and even fewer hopes of success. As proof, team captain Paul Konerko toed traditionally shaky ground in Chicago by suggesting the White Sox didn't have to make the playoffs in order to have a successful season. (Even on the north side of town it's rare to see any member of the Chicago Cubs, perennial losers committed to a lengthy rebuilding process, downplay the significance or possibility of a playoff berth so forthrightly.) To the amazement of fans, division rivals, and baseball enthusiasts across the country, however, the White Sox spent much of the season atop the AL Central. Using strong contributions from three comeback player of the year candidates—Alex Rios, Adam Dunn, and Jake Peavy—as well as solid pitching and defense, the White Sox cobbled together enough winning streaks to be leading their division by the All-Star break. Rookie manager Robin Ventura, who had no previous managerial experience at any level, maintained a composure and focus throughout the season that was matched by his business-as-usual ballclub. While the season was filled with feel-good stories, it eventually was defined by a gut-wrenching slide in the final weeks of September when the White Sox squandered a three-game division lead with 3 weeks left in the season. Ultimately, the Detroit Tigers beat out the Sox for a playoff berth and the South Side boys of summer were forced to spend the fall thinking about what might have been. Comprised of articles from the Chicago Tribune's season-long coverage of the team, this book brings the heartbreaking story of the 2012 Chicago White Sox to readers with its insightful, award-winning sports reporting and commentary. Fans can relive the excitement of a team no one expected to compete and determine just what went wrong at season's end, as told through the trusted voices and beautiful photography of the Chicago Tribune staff.

Collective Action, Philosophy and Law brings together two important strands of philosophical analysis. It combines general philosophical inquiry into collective agency with analyses of specific questions about plural entities and activities in the legal domain. These are issues of growing interest in areas of philosophy like action theory and social ontology, as well as in philosophy of law. The book contains 13 original chapters written by an international team of leading philosophers and legal theorists and is divided into 4 parts: The nature of law and of legislative intention Practical reasoning and duties Causality, blameworthiness and responsibility Citizens, states and institutions. These sections cut across, and build on, different accounts to advance the debate on classical and new issues in collective agency. Each part also features legal-philosophical analyses that draw on general accounts of collective agency to cast new light on the law, descriptive as well as normatively. Collective Action, Philosophy and Law is the first major interdisciplinary and multi-authored work bridging legal and philosophical approaches to collective agency. As such, it is essential reading for students and researchers of philosophy of law, ethics, political philosophy, jurisprudence and legal theory.
