The White Sox Get Soiled — The Darkside Of Sports/Nikki Young

Check out the Darkside of Sports

Lefty Williams started game right and gave up four one out hits before being pulled by White Sox manager William “Kid” Gleason. The Chicago White Sox lost game eight and the series on October 9, 1919. The Cincinnati Reds were officially the new Word Series champions. Besides Buck Weaver, the players involved in the scandal received $5,000 each or more (equivalent to $74,000 in 2019). I was about to say you guys did all that for $5,000!? Shitttttt. Chick Gandil, the leader of the fix received $35,000 (equivalent to $516,000 in 2019). Rumors of the fix continued to float around during the 1920 season, clouding the White Sox as they battled the Cleveland Indians to take the American League title.
