We have been discussing in an American History class I'm teaching several issues surrounding the "fix" of the 1919 World Series and the banishment from baseball of the eight Black Sox. I began the process with the idea that Judge Landis was unfair in his banishment of a few of the Black Sox. I think the Joe Jackson and Buck Weaver probably should have had their banishment removed. However, as I & my students continue to study the effect of the scandal on baseball and on the nation I am coming to the conclusion that Landis did the right thing banishing all eight of them. I would support Jackson's reinstatement just because "shoeless" Joe does belong in the Hall of fame but I think in the context of the damage the scandal did to baseball in 1919. Landis was right. I would be curious to know what other members think about this issue & even the Pete Rose scandal, its modern equivalent.
