The Chicago White Sox have had some great players through the years but some people have come through at different times that you may not remember.

The Chicago White Sox have had some brilliant players play for them in their long history as an organization. Paul Konerko, Frank Thomas, Mark Buehrle, and Chris Sale are a few that come to mind as far as the 21st century but there have also been some players that have come through that are notable for their play away from the White Sox before they got there.

You see right now in the National Football League something happening with the league’s all-time greatest player. Tom Brady has left the New England Patriots to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Michael Jordan finished his career with the Washington Wizards despite becoming one of the greatest athletes in world history with the Chicago Bulls. In the NHL, Martin Brodeur finished his career with the St. Louis Blues despite becoming a hockey legend with the New Jersey Devils. Things like this happen all the time in sports. The White Sox have been involved.

The league has had some really good players over time. There are a few of them that you may have forgotten threw on a White Sox jersey for a little bit. Some of these guys are borderline Hall of Famers and others were just some really good players.

The White Sox are looking forward to a really good season whenever baseball comes back, but looking back on the past is fun sometimes too. Especially when the past reminds you of players who put on your teams’ jersey, even if it was for a short time. These are the five best players that played for the White Sox that you probably forgot about:
