Although most World Series have been of the best-of-seven format, the 1919 World Series was a best-of-nine series. The events of the series are often associated with the Black Sox Scandal, when several members of the Chicago franchise conspired with gamblers to throw the World Series games. In August 1921, eight players from the White Sox were banned from organized baseball for fixing the series (or having knowledge about the fix).
