Description

The Most Gigantic Sporting Swindle in the History of America! This headline proclaiming the 1919 fix of the World Series startled millions of readers and focused the attention of the entire country on one of the most incredible episodes ever to be enacted in the public eye. After painstaking research, Eliot Asinof has reconstructed the entire scene-be-scene story of this fantistic scandal in which 8 Chicago White Sox players arranged with the nation's leading gamblers to throw the series to Cincinnati. Asinof vividly describes the tense meetings, the hitches in the conniving, the actual plays in which the Series was thrown, the Grand Jury indictment, and the famous 1921 trial. Moving behind the scenes, he perceptively examines the motives and backgrounds of the players and the conditions that made the improbable fix all too possible.
