Here’s something I never actually thought I’d see: footage of the 1919 World Series. Yes, the 1919 World Series. The year the infamous Black Sox threw the World Series to Cincinnati in exchange for money.
At around the 3:20 mark you can see footage of Eddie Collins just plain not giving a shit about anything that’s happening. “Oh, that ball was put in play. I’ll just stand here and watch the action.”
What’s even more remarkable is how this footage was found.
