The 1917 Chicago White Sox dominated the American League with a record of 100-54, nine games better than the second-place Boston Red Sox. The 100 wins is a club record that still stands. Their offense was first in runs scored while their pitching staff led the league with a 2.16 ERA.

Eddie Cicotte led the American League in wins (28) amd earned run average (1.53) and ranked second in strikeouts (150). Happy Felsch finished second in the league with 102 RBI.

Facing off against the New York Giants in the 1917 World Series, the team clinched the series in six games, thanks in large part to the workhorse efforts of Eddie Cicotte and Red Faber. It would be the team's last world championship until 2005.
