The Black Sox Scandal is a fake game in major league baseball, in which eight Chicago White Sox members are accused of deliberately losing to the Cincinnati Redskins in the 1919 World Series in exchange for money from the gambling group led by Arnold rostin. As a result of the scandal, judge kenesaw mountain Landis was appointed as the first major league baseball president, granting him absolute control over the sport to restore its integrity.
Although acquitted in 1921, judge Landis sentenced eight players to a life ban. Punishment was eventually defined as being expelled from the Baseball Hall of fame. The ban remains in effect despite calls for a resumption of participation in the next few decades, especially in the case of shoeless Joe Jackson.
