The Chicago White Sox have been very fortunate to have some awesome shortstops over the years. Juan Uribe and his magnificent play will always be remembered from the 2000s and Tim Anderson is going to make a great name for himself in the 2020s. The one we remember the most from the 2010s is Alexei Ramirez. He played for the White Sox from 2008 to 2015. He had some shining moments as a member of this team.

He was most fortunate to represent the White Sox in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game. He was the man who had the honor to go in and replace Derek Jeter for the American League All-Stars as he left an All-Star Game for the last time in his career. It was really cool to see a member of the White Sox have that type of honor.

Ramirez was a very productive hitter as well during his tenure in Chicago. He was a Silver Slugger Award winner twice in the decade as he took it home in 2010 and 2014. He hit 109 home runs and had 542 RBIs with the Sox. He slashed .273/.310/.399 with an OPS of .709 in his White Sox tenure. He was one of those players who gave it his all during his time here even though it never translated to team success. It was nice having him around during one of the lesser decades in White Sox history.
