With the regular season over, teams begin to enter the hiring-and-firing portion of the offseason program. We’re also just over a year out from Rick Renteria taking the helm as Sox skipper.
These two factors lead us to today’s Sporcle: who has managed in at least 50 games for the White Sox in team history? Of the forty names who made the cut, some managers were long-tenured; others were around for a year or less. How many can you name? Good luck!
- As always, the quiz will accept last names in addition to both first and last.
- You’ll have 10 minutes to attempt completion.
- As hints, I’ve provided the length of tenure and the winning percentage.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or sadden your friends:
- Ed Walsh managed the White Sox for 3 games in 1924, for whom he was serving as a coach at the time. I didn’t look up why he was pressed into duty, but he finished with a 1-2 record.
- Other names on the official list that didn’t make my 50-games cut: Doug Rader, Bill Adair, Les Moss, and of course, Don Cooper.
- From that same official list: 11 names have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
