Overview of the baseball party kit

Sometimes embarrassing things are deliberately left out of the history books. They are covered over and forgotten. The truth is that the 1919 World Series wasn’t the only black mark in baseball history – there was a far worse event in 1944. At the tail end of the war, good baseball players were in short supply as they were all overseas doing their duty for their country as part of the war effort. So, as some of you may know, women baseball players were enlisted to fill the gap. What you might not know is that there was still one male baseball team and they played against the women’s teams. They were the Boston Odd Sox.

The team was comprised of baseball players who couldn’t do their military service for various (mainly physical) reasons. The Odd Sox were competing against the Chicago Cheeky Chicks. The Odd Sox needed to win this game in order to reach the finals. The Chicago Cheeky Chicks were the worst team in the League having not won a single game.

But there were rumors afloat that the Odd Sox were under control of some powerful gambling entities and that they were going to throw this game. A lot of money was resting on it. Most, but not all of the players were in on it as they stood to make an extra year’s wages in just one game. In the first two innings the Cheeky Chicks had performed as admirably bad as usual and the Odd Sox, despite their efforts not to win, were in a slight lead.

The problem was that the girls all kept hitting the ball so that it landed on the bases and, thus, it couldn’t be easily ignored by the person manning the base. And the girls – all flat-footed and overweight – didn’t run very fast so despite ball fumbles and other tactics, the Odd Sox couldn’t not get them out without totally revealing to their fans that they were trying to lose the game.

Things were getting desperate for the Odd Sox and it was time for them to bat. Although they tried to miss hitting the ball, the pitcher Petticoat Peterson kept pitching so that her ball hit their bat no matter where they moved it to.

Then in the last and final innings, Petticoat Peterson made a sudden departure. The game was called off and the police were called in to investigate.

Now you might assume the Odd Sox were responsible, but apparently there was some pretty strong in-fighting going on amongst the players in the Cheeky Chicks. And with fans, managers, gamblers and others involved, no one knew for sure who did it. So now let’s relive this moment in history and find out who really did it.
