You hear it all the time. What distinguishes baseball from other sports is that the baseball season is a marathon. But if you intend to contend, you can’t get to September saying we are going to come on in the second half.
You start by winning games, winning series, the very first series you play. Every time.
It’s not just playing hard and playing the game right. You have to be mentally and physically tough. As tough as the toughest or tougher. So, how do you get tough? By making it important. …
The glass ceiling shattered on November 13, 2020 when the Miami Marlins hired Kim Ng as their General Manager. Ng is the first female to hold this position and the first in the four major sports: Baseball, Basketball, Hockey and Football.
She began her career as an intern in the baseball operations department with the Chicago White Sox and was eventually hired full-time in 1991. Ng climbed the ladder at the White Sox, ultimately becoming the Assistant Director of Baseball Operations, serving under General Manager Ron Schueler in 1995.
In 1997, Ng left the White Sox to work for GM…
“You don’t mess with Grace,” says Major League Baseball’s first female General Manager Kim Ng.
It is perhaps the highest compliment from one of sports’ most inspiring trailblazers.
The White Sox continue Women’s History Month by spotlighting Grace Guerrero Zwit, who in 1982, became the first woman to work in the organization’s baseball operations department.

At that time, musicians — mainly men employed at the ballpark — were responsible for the basic organ fare — “The Star-Spangled Banner,” “Charge,” and “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
Nancy, however, saw the White Sox games and her job of entertaining the fans a…

Meanwhile in Glendale:
Bessie Largent, the first female scout for the Chicago White Sox organization, was a trailblazer in her own right, paving the way for women in scouting for years to come.
A native of McKinney, Texas, Largent worked for the White Sox alongside her husband Roy between 1925 and 1943.
Bessie first became interested in baseball while her husband Roy was a coach of the McKinney High School baseball team and she served as the scorekeeper.
Roy was hired first by the White Sox as a scout, and she began as his secretary, ensuring he stayed organized and handled the communication…

As the White Sox have officially turned the corner on a rebuild that started in 2016, season ticket holders Scott and Sarah Shapiro continue to build on a relationship, turned marriage, that began just one year prior. Last month, our Inside the Sox blog team called Scott to express our thanks for his season tickets purchase in 2018. After realizing the extent of the couple’s fandom, we immediately wanted to learn more about their story and chronicle the partnership alongside the White Sox rebuild.
“It’s hard not to be romantic about baseball,” so we pulled together this…
