Rick Renteria is joining some pretty exclusive company.
Announced as the White Sox new manager Monday, Renteria is just the second person to ever be the manager of both of Chicago's big league teams.
Renteria's lone season of major league managerial experience came on the North Side of town in 2014, when he oversaw the Cubs' fifth-place finish in the National League Central with a 73-89 record. He spent the past season as Robin Ventura's bench coach before succeeding Ventura as manager.
He joins Johnny Evers as the only people to serve as skipper for both teams. Evers was the White Sox manager in 1924, going 51-72-1 in 124 games. He was twice the Cubs' manager, posting an 88-65-2 record in 155 games in 1913 and going 41-55 in 96 games in 1921.
Evers was also a Hall of Fame second baseman immortalized in the poem "Baseball's Sad Lexicon," featuring the famous Cubs double-play combination of Tinkers to Evers to Chance. A member of the 1907 and 1908 World Series teams, he played 12 seasons on the North Side, picking up 1,340 hits and posting a .276/.354/.345 slash line. He also played one game in a White Sox uniform in 1922, driving in a run and walking twice in a game against the Cleveland Indians, which finished in a 6-6 tie.
