    • Title: "Black Sox"

      The title of this episode refers to the Black Sox Scandal, a major betting scam which took place during the 1919 World Series. Several Chicago White Sox players intentionally played to lose their game against the Cincinnati Reds as part of a plan devised by first baseman Arnold "Chick" Gandil. As a result, all eight players involved were banned from playing Major League Baseball for the rest of their lives. This had a lasting impact on the White Sox, who would not win another American League championship until 1959, a record forty years after the incident.
