Black Sox Scandal Discussion Followed by Ghosts.
“It totally blew them away. One guy said he had tears in his eyes, another said he'd like to see it again,” Co-Chairperson Joanne Hulbert, SABR Baseball Arts Committee reported about the movie “Ghost Player: Relive the Magic”. The Field of Dreams ballplayers movie screened at the Arts Committee’s meeting during The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) 40th annual convention held in Atlanta August 5 – 8th. 2010. The screening followed a panel discussion about the Black Sox scandal. Those who attended both events were especially moved by the fact that the story of the Black Sox lives on in baseball history and lore.
