Inhaltsangabe: The book dissects the high and low moments in 30 years of White Sox history that have led to continued disappointment and fan alienation. From injuries to mismanagement to plain bad luck, Hope and Despair ties the elements of the White Sox' past and present that have plagued the team, keeping it out of the World Series for over four decades.
Based on historical facts and interviews, this new book looks at each year from 1967-1997, presenting lost opportunities, bad decisions and Chicago-type basebal luck that has resulted in a struggling ballclub that has lost credibility with its fans. Through Hope and Despair gives an honest look at the beleaguered White Sox through the eyes of a devoted South Side fan, giving the reader a chance to discover how life's little moments can affect the future.
