BLACK SOX — Chapter One: "The Glory Days"


Baseball’s progression from an amateur activity to a professional sport is full of great stories. Hear about the myths and legends of early baseball; the pioneers and the inventors; the moguls and the superstars.

And the gamblers.

It all leads to the formation of 1919 Chicago White Sox and sets in motion the elements of one of the most infamous scandals in baseball history.
