The British Bulldog and the Old Roman
Unbeknownst to many, Winston Churchill was a lifelong White Sox fan.
He was first introduced to the game in 1900 while on a lecture tour of the United States, and from then on he never missed an opportunity to catch a game whenever he visited the US.
Initially good friends with Charles Comiskey, the two had a falling out regarding the events surrounding the 1919 World Series, finally reconciling shortly before Comiskey’s death in 1931.
Winnie’s support of the team lead to a statue being erected as a testament of his love of the game and friendship with Comiskey when the Sox moved into New Comiskey Park.
