This is the story of the fantastic scandal in which eight Chicago White Sox players arranged with the nation's leading gamblers to throw the 1919 World Series to Cincinnati. Mr. Asinof vividly describes the backgrounds and motives of the players, the tense meetings, the hitches in the conniving, the actual plays in which the Series was thrown, as well as the Grand Jury indictment and the famous 1921 trial. Here, too, is a graphic picture of the American underworld that managed the fix, the deeply shocked newspapermen who uncovered the story, and the war-exhausted nation that turned with relief and pride to the Series, only to be rocked by the scandal.
