If ESPN made a couple of Chicago White Sox documentaries, we’d want them to be on three specific topics from their team’s history.
The Chicago White Sox barely gets any love from the national media. They are always in the shadow of the Chicago Cubs for whatever reason and the city of Chicago is always shadowed by the east coast in a lot of national media. Well, with the light of the White Sox becoming a good team, it is good to know that this team is going to start getting a little bit more recognition.

Well, if it doesn’t it is fair to assume that they are going to play that game at some point anyway. They are going to battle the New York Yankees on the national stage which is great to think about as fans.
It just recently came out that ESPN’s “30 for 30” is doing a documentary on the home run chase that took place between Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs and Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals. We know that they were both on steroids which makes the chase less appealing to a lot of us 22 years later but it still is a big piece of baseball history. We all know that Frank Thomas was a better baseball player than both but that is not here nor there.
