Sporcle Saturday: White Sox All-Stars

Who has represented the Sox at the Midsummer Classic?

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

As we approach the All-Star break, I thought it would be fun to take a stroll down history lane and see who has been an All-Star for the Sox in the past. While the Midsummer Classic has been played since 1933, today’s challenge will ask you to name only the players selected since 1980. Perhaps, when Winter Has Come, and we’re all in despair from lack of baseball, I’ll throw together an all-time list.

Quiz Parameters

  • As usual, the quiz will accept first and last names, or last names only.
  • You’ll have 10:00 minutes to complete the list.
  • On the list, I’ve included all selections, including if the player did not play due to injury.
  • Due to how I’ve formatted the quiz, you may find it easier to play on Sporcle’s site rather than the embed here; you’ll find the direct link to the quiz below.

Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or sadden your friends:

  • The first two representatives for the Sox at the 1933 edition (at Comiskey Park, no less!) were Al Simmons and Jimmy Dykes. They went 1-4 and 2-3, respectively.
  • The 1954 Midsummer Classic saw an all-time high of 9(!) Sox players: Minnie Minoso, Chico Carrasquel, Sandy Consuegra, Nellie Fox, Bob Keegan, Sherm Lollar, Virgil Trucks, George Kell, and Ferris Fain.
