Today in White Sox History: December 20

Big boss: Veeck took control of the White Sox for the first time on this day, thanks to the courts.


1958
Bill Veeck got a court ruling in his favor which allowed him to get majority control of the White Sox. Members of the Comiskey family went to court in an effort to stop the sale of the franchise. There would be more court rulings before the sale was made final in March 1959.
