Game 2 of the World Series will go down as one of the greatest moments in Sox history. First, there was Konerk’s grand slam off Chad Qualls. And then, there was Scott Podsednik‘s walk-off home run.

The White Sox were down 4-2 when Konerko connected to give them a 6-4 lead. Then, in the bottom of the 9th Podesednik connected for the game winner. The White Sox went up 2-0 in the series and we know how it ended from there.

This is a key moment in Sox history because both of major moments in their 2005 World Series Championship. This organization has really struggled since then, so hopefully they can get back on track. Konerko’s grand slam was the first grand slam in Sox World Series History. Not too shabby for the captain. And Podsednik is best known for that home run. There was even a gold seat where the ball landed. That’s pretty cool

That ends our list of the Top 5 Moments at U.S. Cellular Field. As I said earlier, I invite you to post some of your favorite moments at “The Cell.” Hopefully the White Sox can usher in a new era at Guaranteed Rate Field and return to their former glory.
