Professor Chuck Fountain’s new book The Betrayal, The 1919 World Series and the Birth of Modern Baseball, made the list of the best books of 2015 by the Boston Globe. The book was also named one of ten finalists for Spitball Magazine’s best book of the year.

“Northeastern journalism professor Fountain delivers a literate and fascinating reconsideration of the 1919 Black Sox scandal and how it changed the way professional baseball conducted its business and managed its image.”
