The 2003 Chicago White Sox season was the White Sox's 104th season. They finished with a record 86–76, good enough for second place in the American League Central, four games behind the champion Minnesota Twins.

The White Sox also hosted the 74th Major League Baseball All-Star Game on July 15.

Offseason[edit]

  • 1/27/03 Signed Free Agent Starting Pitcher Esteban Loaiza to a minor league contract.[3]

Regular season[edit]

On April 15, 2003, a fan came out of the stands during the baseball game between the Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox and attacked first base umpire Laz Diaz.[4] After Carlos Lee flied out to right to end the eighth inning, the fan ran on the field and tried to tackle Diaz, wrapping his arms around the umpire's legs.[4]
