Cool video of 1919 World Series

5/1/2014

OK, the game action is pretty far way and you can't really tell what's happening but there are some good scenes of fans cheering, the ballparks and the scoreboard in New York City that updated the game in progress (and which Arnold Rothstein, the gambler behind the fix, may have been watching!).

At the 51-second mark, you can see how upright the catchers stood back then. At the 1:20 mark is the scoreboard. At 3:20, the Reds have a big inning off Eddie Cicotte and you see first baseman Chick Gandil have a meeting with Cicotte at the mound. Wonder what they said to each other ...
