PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Eight men Out is the story of the infamous Black Sox scandal of 1919-1921. The 1988 film covers the struggles of the players working for a notoriously cheap owner/manager, their collusion to throw the 1919 World Series with gamblers for bribes, and the legal cases that followed.
The film, by John Sayles, gives a good portrayal of post-war Chicago, the devotion of fans, the power of Comiskey and the corruption of the legal system. It also shows how powerless the players really were, and why they needed better protection. The film illustrates the legitimization of the sport with the institution of the Commissioner and prohibition on gambling.
The attached powerpoint is pretty simplistic. Feel free to adapt it for your own needs.
