Boston Hotel Buckminster and MLB History Intertwined

On a September day in 1919, bookie and gambler Joseph "Sport" Sullivan made his way through Kenmore Square and into the Boston Hotel Buckminster after the Chicago White Sox had defeated the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park 3-2 earlier that day. He was there to meet with Chicago White Sox first baseman, Arnold "Chick" Gandil. It was in one of the hotel's guest rooms that the bookie and the ballplayer hatched what would become one of the most infamous crimes in American history: the fixing of the 1919 World Series, now referred to as The Black Sox Scandal, that led to the banishment for life of eight ballplayers, including Shoeless Joe Jackson, the disillusionment of the American public, and the institution of the Commissioner system in Major League Baseball. It also led to the writing of "Eight Men Out", the 1963 book about the fixing scandal that was made into a movie with the same title in 1988.
