The 1919 Chicago White Sox (aka Black Sox) are perhaps the most tragic of all teams in baseball history.

One of those eight was third baseman Buck Weaver, who maintained his innocence until his death, yet was never reinstated. Unfortunately, he was sometimes his own worst enemy when it came to pleading his case.
