The 1916 Chicago White Sox finished second in the American League, just two games behind the first-place Boston Red Sox. By this time, the nucleus of the 1917-19 dynasty was in place. Chicago would win the World Series the following season.

Regular season[edit]

This was Shoeless Joe Jackson's first full season with the White Sox. He led the team in batting with a .341 average and finished third in the league overall. Eddie Collins and Happy Felsch also hit .300. The pitching staff was well-balanced, with seven men making at least 14 starts.
