Happy Reds birthday, Edd Roush!

Roush

May 8, 1893

Edd Roush was a member of the 1919 Cincinnati Reds, the team that was allegedly handed the World Championship by the Chicago “Black Sox.” Roush contended for years that the Reds were good enough to win that Series without any help, and further believed that some of his own teammates were involved in a plot to throw the World Series themselves. His granddaughter Susan Dellinger wrote a very interesting book about Roush called Red Legs and Black Sox, which included quite a bit of information about the 1919 season and Series.
