Greatest White Sox Team of All-Time-- Part 18: Kittle and Fisk


The AL Rookie of the Year as well as an All-Star in 1983 (that great year for the Sox, my second-most favorite Sox team of all-time).  Kittle hit  35 homers and drove in 100 runs for the division-winning White Sox that year.

He hit 32 homers in 1984 and 26 more in 1985.  Kittle's 140 homers in a Sox uniform rank 10th in team history.


A 24-year big leaguer, Fisk played 13 of those seasons for the White Sox.  He earned four All-Star berths with the Sox, and his 214 home runs for them are the fourth-most in team history.

Fisk's best offensive season in Chicago came in 1985, when the Hall of Famer hit 37 home runs, drove in 107 runs and stole 17 bases.

Both of these men were on the '83 Sox Western Division Champions.
