Review: 'From Black Sox to Three-Peats' edited by Ron Rapoport
"The papers in Chicago in those days were unlike any printed anywhere else," wrote the great Hugh Fullerton in 1928 for the Saturday Evening Post. "They were written largely in the language that the wild growing young city understood." On the evidence presented in "From Black Sox to Three-Peats: A Century of Chicago's Best Sports Writing," neither the writing nor the city has changed all that much.
