Template:World Series Rating

The 1906 World Series featured a crosstown matchup between the Chicago Cubs, who had posted the highest regular-season win total (116) and winning percentage in major league history, and the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox, known as the "Hitless Wonders" after finishing with the worst team batting average (.230) in the American League, beat the Cubs in six games for one of the greatest upsets in Series history.

It was the first appearance in the World Series for both teams, and the first of three in a row for the Cubs. The White Sox would not reappear in the World Series until the 1917 World Series. The Cubs home field was the West Side Grounds, while the White Sox played at South Side Park.

It was the first World Series appearance for the Cubs' famous infield trio of Joe Tinker (shortstop), Johnny Evers (second base), and Frank Chance (first base). The trio hit a combined 9-for-59 in the series. Two future Hall of Fame pitchers also appeared: Mordecai Brown for the Cubs and Ed Walsh for the White Sox. Sadly, this legendary pair never pitched against each other in any game of the series. Neither of them pitched the best game of the series. Instead, that honor went to the Cubs' 23-year-old Ed Reulbach who pitched the first one-hitter in World Series history in Game 2.

The Cubs were managed by their first baseman Frank Chance. The White Sox were managed by one of their outfielders, Fielder Jones.

Amazingly, this was the last World Series to date to feature two franchises that had never before appeared in the Series.

Managers: Fielder Jones (White Sox), Frank Chance (Cubs)

Umpires: Jim Johnstone (NL), Silk O'Loughlin (AL)
