October 10, 1919

THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, Oct. 10, 1919 

* Chicago White (Black) Sox
* Cincinnati Reds - World Series
* Black Sox Scandal (game 8) (final game)


This issue reports the final game of what is now known as the "Black Sox Scandal" World Series, wherein 8 Chicago players were eventually accused of intentionally losing games in exchange for money from gamblers.
The top of the sports page has a banner headline announcing: "World Title Goes To Reds In Eighth Game, A 10 to 5 Slaughter of Sox". with a banner subhead as well (see). Also on the sports page: "Four Runs In First Stop Chicago Fight To Turn Set's Tide" and other column heads also. The prime feature is the rather large team photo headed: "Cincinnati Reds, Winners Of The World's Baseball Championship".
A few other related articles on pages 17 and 18 as well.
A terrific issue on the final game of arguably the most infamous World Series ever played.
Complete in 28 pages, nice condition.
