[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

In 1989, the Chicago White Sox had their worst record since 1976 and finished in last place in the AL West. Overall, it was a year of transition for the club. The Sox selected slugging first baseman Frank Thomas with their first pick in that year's amateur draft. After nearly a decade with the club, designated hitter Harold Baines was traded to the Texas Rangers on July 29th for outfielder Sammy Sosa and pitcher Wilson Alvarez. Both Sosa and Alvarez would go on to play big roles on the Sox in the years to come. Slick fielding third baseman Robin Ventura made his big league debut on September 12th and would remain a club mainstay for the next decade.
