"This book is the exciting story of how one of the most infamous scandals in American history-the Black Sox scandal-continued for over a year following the "fixed" World Series of 1919 until the truth began to emerge. It is a story of gamblers and crooks; a story of teammates betraying one another; a story of investigations and cover-ups"-- Provided by publisher.
