The Biggest Scandal in Sport?

The biggest scandal in sports is a matter of opinion, but the 1919 World Series, also known as the Black Sox Scandal, is often cited as a prime contender. The scandal involved eight members of the Chicago White Sox conspiring with gamblers to intentionally lose the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. The scandal was discovered after the series ended, and the eight players were banned from baseball for life. The scandal had a profound impact on baseball, leading to the creation of the commissioner's office and the establishment of stricter rules against gambling.
