Dec 15, 2022

We have entire websites and a whole industry devoted to reselling tickets these days. But in 1920, Rube Marquard was arrested for trying to scalp his World Series tickets to an undercover cop.

Mike and Bill take the opportunity to look back on the surprisingly scandal-filled life of one oof the Hall of Fame's least effective players.

Plus, happy birthday to Bill Nicholson and Ken Hill!
