Quote of the Day

“The written rules were rigid and righteous, while the real rules were often wide open and dirty.”

--Eliot Asinof in “Eight Men Out,” his great book about the 1919 Chicago White Sox/Black Sox scandal.

Eight Men Out

Eight men who got caught, and punished, so we wouldn't know the written rules weren't the real rules.
