Eight Men Out: The Black Sox and the 1919 World Series by Eliot Asinof

Eliot Asinof, a former minor league baseball player who had launched a new career as a free lance writer, was between assignments and having lunch in New York City with Howard Cady, then the editor-in-chief at G.P. Putnam's Sons. The talk swung to baseball. Cady suggested the possibility of a book about the Black Sox scandal. Asinof leaped at the idea. "But it'll take me at least a year," he said.

It took almost three years of constant research and travel and the result is the classic "Eight Men Out" -- the definitive study of the fixing of the 1919 World Series. That swindle, as F. Scott Fitzgerald understood, abused, "the faith of 50 million people."
