1919 Black Sox The 1919 Chicago White Sox--known to baseball historians as the Black Sox--were bribed by gamblers to deliberately lose the World Series that autumn to the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds took the best-of-nine series five games to three. The two best pitchers on White Sox accounted for all five losses: Eddie Cicotte lost two games and Lefty Williams lost three. Eight members of the team were eventually banned from baseball for life when the details of the scandal broke in 1920.

1919 Black Sox Scandal The worst sports scandal in American history revolved around the 1919 Chicago White Sox. The White Sox won their second American League pennant in three years and were heavily favored to beat the National League champion Cincinnati Reds in the best-of-nine World Series. But, lo and behold, the Reds won in eight games. Reporters and baseball insiders who watched the games knew something was amiss. White Sox pitchers Eddie Cicotte and Lefty Williams, the team's two aces, combined for all five Chicago losses. Their pitches seemed to lack zip. The White Sox also made uncharacteristic errors in the field and amateurish mental mistakes. It took nearly a year for evidence to surface that the eight of the White Sox had thrown the Series for gamblers. The press dubbed them the 'Black Sox,' and the eight were banned from pro baseball. Among them was the great Shoeless Joe Jackson, whose .356 career batting average is the third best ever. In order to restore the public's faith in Major League Baseball, Judge Kenesaw M. Landis was hired by the 16 team owners to serve as the sport's commissioner. He was given a lifetime contract and extraordinary powers. The White Sox did not play in another World Series until 1959.

First MLB All-Star Game 1933 The first MLB All-Star Game was played n 1933. Arch Ward, the Chicago Tribune's sports editor, came up with the idea for the game. It was to coincide with the celebration of the cityís 'Century of Progress' Exposition. By the 1930s, baseball had already established itself as Americaís favorite pastime and the national exposition provided the perfect stage to introduce baseballís best to the rest of the country. The game was originally conceived as a single, one-time event to help lift the spirits of the country during the Great Depression. However, its enormous popularity made the All-Star Game an annual event. That first All-Star Game was played on July 6, 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago on a day when both leagues had no games scheduled. Retired Giants' manager John McGraw was chosen to manage the National League team, while Philadelphia Athletics' manager Connie Mack led the American League team. More than 47,000 fans attended. There was one player in particular who excited fans and players alike. 'We wanted to see the Babe,' said NL starting pitcher Bill Hallahan. 'Sure, he was old and had a big waistline, but that didnít make any difference. We were on the same field as Babe Ruth.' (The National League team is shown in the photo below.) The first run was scored in the second inning, when AL starting pitcher Lefty Gomez drove in Jimmie Dykes with a single. In the next inning, Ruth gave the fans what they came to see--a two-run homer into the right-field stands. The crowd 'roared in acclamation' for the homer, according to Baseball Almanac. The AL went on the win the game 4-2, bolstered by Ruthís home run, Jimmy Dykes' two hits, and seven innings of two-run pitching by Lefty Gomez, who got credit for the win. The National League was led by the 'Fordham Flash,' Frankie Frisch of the St. Louis Cardinals, who had two hits (including a home run) and two hits by Bill Terry, the first baseman of the New York Giants.

Four MLB Greats - 1928 This impromptu photo shows Lou Gehrig, Tris Speaker, Ty Cobb, and Babe Ruth before a New York Yankees-Philadelphia Athletics game in 1928. The photo may have been taken on Opening Day; the heavy jackets worn by Gehrig and Ruth suggest a cool temperature. Not a bad core of players to start a team, I'd say! (Imagine what their salaries would be today!) The A's gave the Yankees a darn good run for the AL pennant in 1928 but came up just a bit short, winning 98 games and finishing in second spot just 2.5 games out of first place. The Yankees took 16 of 22 games versus the A's in 1928. Speaker and Cobb were both winding down their spectacular careers that season. Some baseball scholars believe their advancing ages--they were both in their forties--may have been a hindrance to the A's. Speaker could no longer play center field effectively. He was used mostly as a pinch hitter by the middle of July and appeared in no games at all after August. The Athletics' younger stars (fellows like Al Simmons, Mickey Cochrane, and Lefty Grove) led them to three straight AL pennants from 1929 through 1931.
