Who Were the Black Sox?

The sportsbook agents of the early 1900’s always wrote about the horrible financial conditions in MLB at the time. While owners were making fortunes off their teams, the players were not seeing the salaries that they needed. Most MLB players held down two or three offseason jobs just to make ends meet. Even the players on the Chicago White Sox had to take on extra work just to pay the bills and feed their families. This was also a time when gambling was becoming huge and sporting events made as much money for big gamblers as they did for the team owners.
