As long as people have played games, there has been a temptation to win (or intentionally lose) by cheating. Infamous cases throughout the history of sport abound, from the thrown 1919 World Series to the recent doping confessions of track starMoreAs long as people have played games, there has been a temptation to win (or intentionally lose) by cheating. Infamous cases throughout the history of sport abound, from the thrown 1919 World Series to the recent doping confessions of track star Marion Jones. In this entertaining and informative book, sports historian Fran Zimniuch recalls the notorious scandals that have tainted our most popular sports, concluding that such incidents are often a reflection of the times.

Benefiting from personal interviews with many figures either involved in or on the periphery of recent scandals, including BALCOs Victor Conte, Crooked presents a pageant of infamy as rich as the history of modern sports itself.
