Just in time for the 100th anniversary of professional baseball's Black Sox Scandal.

The Chicago White Sox, who are set to play the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series of 1919, are at odds with their team's owner, Charles Comiskey (Clifton James), who pays his players unsatisfactory wages despite the team's popularity. A group of professional gamblers offers the Sox's best athletes a fortune to throw the series, and the players agree. However, their reputations and careers are ruined when the dark secret, dubbed the "Black Sox Scandal," reaches the public consciousness.

The feature runs continuously throughout the day and, when available, shown with subtitles/closed captioning. Snacks permitted!
