Billy Williams, a Six-time All-Star and National League Rookie of the Year with the Cubs in 1961, likened the Cubs-White Sox rivalry to a famous feud during the Civil War.

"A long time ago we used to play the White Sox at Sox Park and that was always fun," Williams said. "You can't look at the record each team has because I always compare it with the Hatfield and McCoys. It's really something."
