Sooooo many ticket inquiry e-mails for this. But the best comes from a descendant of an organizer of the 1919 Black Sox scandal: "Even though he's not looked at favorably as a mobster, this event would have never happened without him." Accurate!

In a surprise move, the 1919 scandal has been reversed, and If we ever open up MLB again, the Black Sox will now be representing Chicago . The Cincinnati Reds will now be allowed to sit cross legged during our National anthem, but Charlie Hustle is still sidelined.
