The scandal crashes down on eight Chicago White Sox players and 10 gamblers. The criminal trial is a fiasco, though it ends well for the defendants. But the new commissioner of baseball is not beholden to the courts and he levies the ultimate punishment against the players.

After years of failed appeals, the players make new lives for themselves. Most play with outlaw teams across the country while three former teammates in Chicago enjoy Hall of Fame careers. And the story ends with a memorable reunion of the two of the greatest hitters of all time.
