New Reds Exhibit To Display Items From The 1919 World Series That The White Sox Threw
--The exhibit also hopes to dispel another myth, that the White Sox were an invincible team that lost only because they threw the Series. In fact, the Reds were the stronger team on paper. They had a better season record, a deeper pitching staff, and an offense that was comparable to the White Sox. But when news of the fix emerged the next season, the Reds victory was forever tainted. Eventually, it was found that eight members of the White Sox conspired to throw the games. All eight eventually were thrown out of organized baseball. (This part is actually taken verbatim from the Reds press relase!)

Actually this is kinda cool.... definately gonna check that out when we visit in June
