Summary:
"Most fans today know about the 1919 'Black Sox'; they likely don't know that it took nearly a year to uncover the fix. Burying the Black Sox is the first book to focus on the cover-up that kept the fix from the American public until almost another whole baseball season was played, and to examine in detail the way events unfolded as the deception was unraveled."--[cover verso].
