Dickie Kerr’s Interview About the Chicago Black Sox
The 1919 Chicago White Sox are the most infamous team in baseball history. Eight members of their squad knew about and/or participated in a plot with gamblers to throw that year’s World Series to the underdog Cincinnati Reds. Known as the Black Sox, those eight players were ultimately banned from baseball for life by Commissioner Kennesaw Mountain Landis. Although that team is now notorious for the actions of some, they had teammates who gave it their all, yet aren’t remembered nearly as much. One of those was pitcher Dickie Kerr, who once went on the record about his experience.
