What did the White Sox ever do to ESPN? For the umpteenth time, ESPN wrote the White Sox out of history, this time in their documentary “Long Gone Summer.”
The ESPN documentary didn’t even mention that Sammy Sosa played for the White Sox. Skipped right over it. Rangers to Cubs. Come on.

While Sosa didn’t get much screen time in the 30 for 30 film, when his background was discussed the movie went into his younger days with the Rangers, and then poof! He was with the Cubs!
Forgotten was Sosa establishing himself in the majors on the South Side, stealing bases of all things. Not even a mention of the move that brought him to the Cubs, the trade between the two Chicago teams: Sosa for George Bell.
So this should come as no surprise, but it’s frustrating nonetheless.
ESPN forgets about Chicago White Sox, again, in ‘Long Gone Summer’ originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
