Southside Showdown seeks new writers, White Sox fans


Southside Showdown has held a steady place as FanSided’s home for Chicago White Sox coverage, dating back to when the site was first launched in June 2010. There have been plenty of changes to the roster during the time frame since, both on the White Sox roster and with our staff here on site. There’s a lot of history on both sides as well.

Despite the changes, there has always been one constant here on site with regards to our goals: to give you folks, our readers, the very best White Sox discussion that we possibly can.

Consider yourself a passionate fan? Read us or other sites with regularity and ever wonder if you should write about the team too? Maybe you’re just stumbling across us for the first time and you like what you see. We are looking to add to our staff here on site and this could be your chance to grab a bat and join the team.


We like to let our staff write about the aspects of the team they are most passionate about. There’s room for those interested in covering the minor leagues. Maybe you’re more of a transaction junkie and you want to talk about the impact a new signing could have. Or maybe you just want to chip in on series previews, game recaps, or any number of other potential story ideas that could relate to this team.

Writers are asked to contribute a minimum of 1-2 posts per week. We’ll always welcome more frequent contributions than that, but we won’t require it.

We know that for most this is primarily a hobby and something you do for the love of it. That’s why we do it too. Most of us have families, full-time careers, and/or school to balance into our lives as well (there’s room for things besides baseball, right?). This is an opportunity to join a staff of writers here who are just simply passionate about the White Sox and want to continue to reach the rest of this great fan base.

Want to join us?

Applying is very easy. Head on over and complete an application. It’ll give you a chance to share some insight into your background (prior online writing experience is not necessary but always encouraged) and let us know why you’d be a fit on site, so give it your best. We’ll be in touch from there.
