The Black Sox Scandal – There Was a Ridiculous Trial Too – Episode 39
This week Matt and Tony get into one of the craziest baseball scandal’s ever: The fixing of the 1919 World Series. The Black Sox Scandal. It turns out there was a big trial where many of the players careers were on the line. Craziness ensued: Player confessions were literally stolen from the courtroom. In the end, there wasn’t enough to convict them, or maybe there was. Hard to say when you have a jury so biased that they “carried players on their shoulders in celebration” after the verdict was announced! The Commissioner still banned everyone anyone, including Shoeless Joe, who it turns out did wear shoes.
Listen, learn, laugh on Legally Insane – and come to the live show this Thursday at the Hollywood Improv at 730. Tickets available online!
