Overview

IN THE GRAND TRADITION OF EIGHT MEN OUT . . .
the untold story of baseball s ORIGINAL SCANDAL

Did the Chicago Cubs throw the World Series in 1918 and get away with it?

Who were the players involved and why did they do it?

Were gambling and corruption more widespread across the leagues than previously believed?

Were the players and teams cursed by their actions?

Finally, is it time to rewrite baseball history?

With exclusive access to surprising new evidence, Sporting News reporter Sean Deveney details a scandal at the core of baseball s greatest folklore in a golden era as exciting and controversial as our sports world today. This inside look at the pivotal year of 1918 proves that baseball has always been a game overrun with colorful characters, intense human drama, and explosive controversy.

"The Original Curse is not just about baseball. It is a sweeping portrait of America at war in 1918. . . . In the end, the proper question is not, How could a player from that era fix the World Series? It s, How could he not?
