That didn’t stop Fox from playing 19 seasons in Major League Baseball, 14 of those seasons on the south side of Chicago for the White Sox. Fox ended compiled a .291 BA, 35 home runs, and 740 RBIs during his tenure with the White Sox. Fox played in 12 All-Star Games, won three Gold Glove Awards, and was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player in 1959. The Chicago White Sox retired Fox’s number two jersey, and Fox was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997 by the Veterans Committee.
