Another bribery scandal clouds the World Series atmosphere. Judge Landis bans Giants Outfielder Jimmy O'Connell and coach Cozy Dolan from the World Series after they admit an attempt to bribe Phils Shortstop Heinie Sand on the 27th to "go easy" in their season-ending series against the Giants. O'Connell implicates Frankie Frisch‚ George Kelly‚ and Ross Youngs‚ who deny everything and are cleared by Landis. O'Connell is out of baseball at 23. AL President Ban Johnson‚ an enemy of the Giants John McGraw‚ proclaims that the World Series should be canceled because of the betting scandal‚ a pronouncement that the owners will ignore. Johnson‚ however‚ decides not to attend any World Series games.
