Black Sox: the World Series gambling scandal of 1919 ... and the cover-up: 2009 interview with the late Gene Carney.

Interview with Gene Carney, author of the 2006 book "Burying the Black Sox, How Baseball's Cover-Up of the 1919 World Series Fix Almost Succeeded".


Click that link to listen to the 53 minute interview done 6/8/2009 6:30 PM.  Gene Carney died Sunday, July 5, 2009 at the age of 63.

That interview was from my defunct blog talk radio program at blogtalkradio.com/radicalbaseball, also called Radical Baseball.  It generated almost no calls.  You can find recordings of the programs at the link; the Carney interview is the only one that went more than 30 minutes.

1919 World Series: questions about gambling  I wrote that in June 2009 and used it in the interview.  It links to a spreadsheet that shows the dates, scores, pitchers, umpire assignments: https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=rWXRxAkYuyl1txG0Af0aeQA
