What’s this?

Writing in Chicago Lawyer Magazine, two attorneys raise serious questions about the accuracy of the definitive book on the Black Sox scandal: “The lack of supporting information in [the author’s] meticulously indexed notes suggests that the book may not be much more than fiction, or, at the very most, a summary of inflated press accounts.” Though the book was published decades after the fact it is historically critical to the details of this scandal because it forever cemented the eight team members of the 1919 Chicago White Sox as cheaters, and inspired the 1988 movie “Eight Men Out.”
