The sad story of Jim Devlin

Philadelphia Inquirer reporter, Frank Fitzpatrick, recounts the story of Jim Devlin, one of the more successful 19th century pitchers who was expelled from Baseball for throwing games. 


Baseball ... this field, this game ... It is part of our past.  It reminds us all of what once was good -- and could be again.

Sad indeed.

Thanks for posting it.
