We're happy to finally have filmmaker, journalist and author Greg Klein (@JYDbook) on the pod for a chat his new book, his old book and more.. To start, we discuss Greg's new book, The Paper Tigers, a fictional account of a real-life incident in baseball history. After Ty Cobb was suspended in 1912 for going into the stands and attacking a fan, his teammates refused to play a game in Philadelphia, leaving manager Hughie Jennings to find replacement players. The novel tells the story of some of those players, including two con men and a seminary student., with the central character being a local barmaid who was the sister of one of the con men and married to the other. We talk about how Greg got the idea for the book, which was originally a screenplay, balancing facts and historical fiction, the truth behind Cobb's attack on the fan, the connection to the 1919 Black Sox Scandal, baseball movies and more. (22:20) - From there, it's mostly wrestling chat. We talk about Greg's book The King of New Orleans about the Junkyard Dog, Sylvester Ritter. We talk about Greg's fandom growing up in suburban DC but also getting to see Houston wrestling, the rise of JYD in Mid-South Wrestling for Bill Watts, his popularity in New Orleans and the rest of the territory, his leaving for the WWF, Watts trying to replace him with other black wrestlers, Greg meeting JYD in later years and more. We also talk about our shared love of Mid-South as a whole, some of its more famous angles, the transition to the UWF, studio wrestling vs arena wrestling and lot of other wrestling topics. There were a lot of planned topics left on the table, including Greg now living in Cooperstown and how the Baseball Hall of Fame was effected by the pandemic and past and present work stoppages in the sport, his wrestling career and being trained by Adrian Street and lots of other fun stuff, so we will definitely try to get Greg back on in the future. Note: We had some Skype issues during recording, so hopefully the editing was not too egregious and the flow of the conversation was maintained. Thanks for listening.

How a Pope is Elected   This is a discussion of a papal election, with special attention to the election of John Paul II.   This was a classroom lecture and is an hour and ten minutes long.  There is a discussion of the ideological factions in the church, and the regional divisions.   The successful candidate is able to put together a coalition of votes that incorporates the ideological factions and the geographic divisions.  The candidate also has to be able to address the issues facing the church.  Sometimes those issues are within the church, sometimes they are global or international issues.  This was originally a zoom lecture, one of the first I delivered.  There were some bumps along the way so I had to delete some sections.  Sorry abut that. Popes mentioned:  Pius XII, John XXIII/Roncalli, Paul VI/Montini, John Paul I, John Paul II/Wojtyla, Benedict XVI/Ratzinger, Francis I, Alexander (1600s) Names Mentioned:  Hans Kung, Sunens, Kroll,  Ottaviani, Siri, Bernardin, O'Conner, Kennesaw Mountain Landis, Zbigniew Brzesinski, Terms:  Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (Note glitch:  Not Defense of the Faith). “Roman,” curia, papabili, habemus papam, heresy, Tubingen University, College of Cardinals, Conclave,  St. Peter's Square, Constantinian Donation, Temporal power, “radical,” ostkardinalaat.  I think it is hard to overstate how proud people were that there was a Polish pope.  The Italians had dominated the papacy for perhaps 400 years.  But there he was, a Polish pope.  Would you like a joke?  When JP II visited St. Louis he was introduced to the legendary baseball player Stanley Musial, then retired.  Musial said to the pope, "We have two things in common.  Would you like to know what they are?"  The Pope said he would.  "We are both Polish and we are both former cardinals."    Films:  Two Popes:  a dialogue between Pope Benedict and Cardinal Bergoglio (Francis) We Have a Pope (about a reluctant pope, chosen over his objections) The Good Pope.  The story of John XXIII.  I have not seen this film but it said to be good. Eight Men Out:  The story of the Black Sox Scandal and Kennesaw Mountain Landis. The Shoes of the Fisherman.  Pure fiction about an unexpected election.

Our continuing series of 100 of the darkest moments in pop culture history takes a look at a moment where nobody died but it completely effected Major League Baseball. The Black Sox Scandal was a gambling and game-fixing scandal where members of the Chicago White Sox were accused of throwing the 1919 World Series. Despite acquittals in a trial, Judge Landis permanently banned all eight men from professional baseball. The punishment was eventually defined by the Baseball Hall of Fame to include banishment from the Baseball Hall of Fame. Despite requests for reinstatement in the decades that followed (particularly in the case of Shoeless Joe Jackson), the ban remains.

In this episode Mark talks about one of his favourite films: the 1989 American sports supernatural drama film "Field of Dreams" written and directed by Phil Alden Robinson. Adapted from the 1982 novel "Shoeless Joe" by W. P. Kinsella, the film stars Kevin Costner as Ray Kinsella, an Iowan Corn farmer, who decides to build a baseball diamond on top of one of his corn fields, after being compelled by a mysterious voice which tells him: "If you build it he will come" - which leads to Ray Kinsella and his self-built baseball field to be visited by legendary baseball player "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (played by Ray Liotta), as well as other players that were a part of the so called 1919 "Black Sox Scandal" in which eight members of the Chicago White Sox were accused of purposely losing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for money, as well as other now deceased baseball players. Apart from Ray, only his wife Annie Kinsella (played by Amy Madigan) and his daughter Karin Kinsella (played by Gaby Hoffmann) are innitially able to see the ghosts of the now deceased baseball players after they return to play the game that they love upon the magical baseball field - until Ray is compelled by the same mysterious voice to "ease the pain" of someone and to "go the distance", which leads him to travel across America to seek the assistance of a renowned, now reclusive, author by the name of Terence Mann (played by James Earl Jones), as well as fulfill the dream of a long since passed away baseball player by the name of Archibald "Moonlight" Graham (played by Burt Lancaster), who played in a game for the New York Giants in 1922, who ultimately left the game to become a doctor, but who always regretted never getting the chance to bat. However, because of Ray's decision to build his baseball field and with the finances of his family dwindling by the day, he must face the possibility of losing his farm and the baseball field as a result of Annie's brother, Mark (played by Timothy Busfield), attempting to take control of it from them for their own good. Along his journey across the country, Ray finds himself rehashing and attempting to come to terms with the broken relationship that he had with his late father, John Kinsella (played Dwier Brown), who was a devoted baseball fan, as he seeks to reconnect with him and the sport that they both loved. The beautiful score of the film was composed by the late-great film composer James Horner. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/markthepoet/message

The Year That Was

Baseball was the only truly national American sport in 1919, loved by fans across the United States. But the mood among players was grim--team owners kept salaries artificially low. When the Chicago White Sox won their league championship, the temptation to accept hard cash from gamblers to deliberately lose the World Series was irresistible. After all, what could possibly go wrong? The Wingfoot Express took its maiden voyage around Chicago on July 21st, 1919. The 150-foot long airship was filled with hydrogen gas--lighter than air, but extremely flammable. The dirigible caught fire in downtown Chicago, inside the Loop, right above the Illinois Trust and Savings Bank, at the corner of LaSalle Street and Jackson Boulevard. The entire ship was consumed in literally seconds. The five men aboard jumped and tried to inflate their parachutes, but only three were successful. One man, mechanic Carl Weaver, plunged through the skylight of the bank. In this photo of the bank before the disaster, you can see how the interior was ringed by a circle of teller stations. They enclosed an area where typists, telegraphists, and other bank staff worked. For security purposes, this inner area could only be accessed through two gated entrances. Flaming debris, including the engine and two full tanks, crashed through the skylight above this inner area, starting a massive fire and trapping employees inside. This image of the interior of the bank after the disaster gives some sense of the horror of those trapped inside. 13 people died in the crash, ten of them bank employees. Before radio, fans had few ways to follow a live baseball game. Newspapers would receive game updates by telegraph and posted results in their windows. In 1912, the Washington Post invested in an elaborate scoreboard system complete with lights indicating balls, strikes, and position on the field. You can see here fans gathered to "watch" the 1912 World Series. The American and National Leagues kept player salaries low with the reserve clause, a provision in player contracts that kept players tied to one team and unable to negotiate higher salaries. The clause also made it difficult for new teams and new leagues to attract top-quality players. The Federal League, founded in 1913, tried to operate as a third major league and ended up suing the established leagues for operating an illegal monopoly. This is an official scorecard of one Federal League Team, the Neward Peps. The case came before Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. It couldn't have landed on the desk of anyone more deeply invested in the game of baseball. At the start of World War I, team owners were desperate to keep the game going and their players out of the trenches. One attempt to demonstrate their patriotism was the practice, seen here, of holding drill sessions with players before games. The War Department was not impressed and made players eligible for the draft after the 1917 World Series. The president of the American League, Ban Johnson, suggested reserving 18 players for each team and conscripting the rest. No one was impressed by this plan. While more than one third of major league players enlisted, others went to work for factories in essential industries such as steel manufacturing or shipbuilding. The players spent far more time playing baseball for factory teams than painting or welding, and team owners worried that major league baseball would be run out of business by industrial ball. Charles Comiskey, owner of the Chicago White Sox, denounced the factory team players as unpatriotic and sniffed that he wasn't sure he wanted them back on his team. The 1918 World Series was held in early September at the request of the War Department, so the second, most deadly wave of the Spanish Flu pandemic was just getting started when baseball ended for the season. Nevertheless, at least some players took to the field in masks to prevent the spread of the disease. I have been able to find out little about this photo. I don't know who was playing or the exact date. I wish I knew more--when and where the picture was taken would be a start. If I find out more, I will post it. The 1919 White Sox had a fantastic team, with several top-notch players and one genuine superstar in Joe Jackson. Shoeless Joe Jackson is one of baseball's all-time greatest players. Eddie Cicotte was a fine pitcher and possibly the inventor of the knuckleball. Lefty Williams was another strong pitcher for the White Sox. Chick Gandil, on other hand, was just average. On the other hand, he had a reputation as being crooked and multiple contacts with gambling organizations. Gandil's connections went all the way back to New York underworld figure Arnold Rothstein. Thoughtful and scheming, Rothstein inspired multiple fictional representations, including Nathan Detroit in Guys and Dolls. The Cincinnati Reds beat the White Sox in the World Series five games to three. It was difficult to tell, watching the White Sox play, if some men on the team were playing to lose. Certainly, some of the players seemed off, but a player can have a run of bad luck. Other members of the team, such as the catcher, were sure something fishy was going on. Rumors swirled throughout the series and into the off-season that the the series had been fixed. In the fall of 1920, the story broke open, the case went before the Cook County grand jury, and all eight players were indicted. Cicotte, Jackson and Williams confessed before the grand jury--after being told they would not be prosecuted if they told the truth. In fact, the person who made that promise, Charles Comiskey's attorney, had no power to make such a promise. In the summer of 1921, the Black Sox went on trial for intent to injure the business of the Chicago White Sox. It was a difficult case to prove. Cicotte, Jackson and Williams retracted their confessions, and it proved impossible to get the gamblers in court. Ultimately, the men were acquitted. Despite their acquittal, Judge Landis, now the Commissioner of Baseball, declare the men banned from baseball for life. This had the intended effect of cleaning up the game, but was seen then and now as unjust. In this cartoon from 1921, a laundry woman, identified as the jury, shows Landis the White Sox uniforms and declares them "Clean and white!" Landis replies, "They look just th' same to me as they did before." A myth arose about the Black Sox, that they were more sinned against than sinning--hard working, blue-collar guys who just wanted to play ball but were unfairly treated by the owners, the lawyers, and the commissioner. The ultimate expression of this myth is the 1989 movie Field of Dreams. In this scene the spirits of the players emerge from an Iowan cornfield to again play baseball.

Can we give MLB the benefit of the doubt; but this could be a PR train wreck for baseball if no action is taken. This accusation by its players needs to be taken as seriously as the Black Sox Scandal and Pete Rose's gambling was, because baseball can only survive so much damage to its credibility!

This week Matt and Tony get into one of the craziest baseball scandal's ever: The fixing of the 1919 World Series. The Black Sox Scandal. It turns out there was a big trial where many of the players careers were on the line. Craziness ensued: Player confessions were literally stolen from the courtroom. In the end, there wasn't enough to convict them, or maybe there was. Hard to say when you have a jury so biased that they "carried players on their shoulders in celebration" after the verdict was announced! The Commissioner still banned everyone anyone, including Shoeless Joe, who it turns out did wear shoes.   Listen, learn, laugh on Legally Insane - and come to the live show this Thursday at the Hollywood Improv at 730.
