1919 World Series

1919 World Series


The 1919 World Series matched the American League champion Chicago White Sox against the National League champion Cincinnati Reds. Although most World Series have been of the best-of-seven format the 1919 World Series was a best-of-nine series (along with 1903 1920 and 1921). Baseball decided to try the best-of-nine format partly to increase popularity of the sport and partly to generate more revenue. The events of the series are often associated with the Black Sox Scandal when several members of the Chicago franchise conspired with gamblers to throw (i.e. intentionally lose) the World Series games.
