It's time to take you down the wormhole I've been following pretty much all day (c'mon, it's Friday). Apparently some footage of the 1919 World Series has been unearthed after decades being stored underground in the frozen wasteland of Canada. You remember the 1919 series, right? The one where eight members of hte heavily-favored Chicago White Sox took part in a conspiracy to throw the championship? The tale told in the book and movie "Eight Men Out"? Here's a piece from Deadspin that breaks it down nicely, and a more in-depth look from SABR. Check out the video below, along with another video of previously discovered newsreel footage from the same series. Yeah, I really nerd out when it comes to this stuff. Enjoy.
