Black Sox Scandal

It was here at the Boston Hotel Buckminster
on September 18, 1919, in one of the hotel's guest
rooms that the Chicago White Sox first baseman
Chick Gandil and bookmaker-gambler
Joseph "Sport" Sullivan hatched what would
become one of the most infamous crimes
in American history: the fixing of the
1919 World Series, now referred to as
The Black Sox Scandal
