With this unprecedented sixty game baseball season winding down I thought it was as good as time as any to complete the Mickey Rawlings mystery series by Troy Soos Soos wrote seven mysteries featuring journeyman utility player Rawlings that take place between 1911 1923 as he moves from one storied franchise to the next One gets a feel for how baseball was played during the era while also learning about the cities team s history and the overall historical importance of the year written about Cincinnati Red Stalkings takes readers back to 1921 with baseball s future at a crossroads Rawlings finds himself playing for baseball s original franchise as Soos deftly brings the city I know call home to life In 1919 the Chicago White Sox infamously accepted money from gamblers to lose the World Series Although the series was extended to seven games so as to look competitive White Sox players tried to lose booting a ground ball here and missing a pitch right down the middle there Having read the now classic Eight Men Out by Eliot Asinof I know the history behind the scandal the important part being that White Sox owner Charles Comiskey was notorious for being cheap underpaying even his star players like pitchers Buck Weaver and Eddie Cicotte and outfielder Shoeless Joe Jackson Weaver was behind the fix and recruited underpaid teammates to join him When the scandal came out baseball did not know how to react to this unprecedented act even though players such as the New York Giants Hal Chase had been taking money from gamblers for years If baseball was to remain as America s game it would have to clean up its image and rid itself of gamblers Both league presidents American League power hungry Ban Johnson included gave authority to Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis to preside as the first league commissioner Landis proceeded to ban the eight White Sox players for life and made it known that baseball would not tolerate anyone in a league with gamblers What is often forgotten by history is the White Sox 1919 opponents the Reds Mickey Rawlings joined a 1921 Reds team who still believed that in 1919 that they were the better team Veterans Heinie Groh and Edd Rousch remained from the pennant winning team and circulated the belief that the Reds play on the field was indeed superior to the White Sox History would have to determine that but in 1921 the Reds found themselves fighting to stay out of the league s cellar The team needed extra revenue and was going to open an exhibit honoring the 1869 team the first professional team in baseball history That first Red Stockings team went 53 11 and declared themselves champions even though baseball at the time was loosely organized there was no national league until 1876 Yet the Reds of 1921 needed revenue because their product in the field was not very good Honoring the team s past would be the impetus to bring fans to the ballpark Rawlings has long been a student of baseball history and offers to help with the project until the its organizer is found murdered in his office and Rawlings finds himself wrapped up in another ballpark mystery Mickey and his long time girl friend Margie Turner have settled in the ueen City s Mount Healthy neighborhood Their home is modest and indicative of players salaries at the time To supplement income Margie takes a job at the Cincinnati Zoo only to become embroiled in a mystery of her own All of the landmarks Soos mentions in this case I know well as I ve either visited them or passed by on many occasions the downtown library the zoo fountain suare the train terminal which is now the museum center In 1921 Cincinnati was a city of electric trolleys and well to do neighborhoods made nationally famous by President Howard Taft and Senator Nicholas Longworth of the Rookwood Pottery Company and husband of Alice Roosevelt Cincinnati was also a city of speakeasies and still smarting from the Boss Cox rebellion of a few years back Cox s cronies still ran the city and these movers and shakers also patronized the Reds the Bonner and Whitaker families As Rawlings would find out both families had a long history with the Reds well before Boss Cox came to power This would add multiple layers to the mystery that Rawlings would need to solve soon or his own life could be at stake Soos paints a picture of prohibition era America as well as the best historical writers The predominately German Cincinnati was openly against prohibition and the beer flowed freely Baseball still reeled from the Black Sox scandal and in passing Rawlings notes that Babe Ruth was challenging his own home run record from the year before It was the Babe who in the 1920s saved baseball from itself and he makes himself front and center in another of Rawlings mysteries Meanwhile Mickey with the help of Margie and long time friend Karl Landfors get to the bottom of both the Reds and zoo mysteries but not before Rawlings pays multiple visits to Commissioner Landis who makes it known that he rules baseball with an iron fist and will not tolerate those who associate with gamblers or minorities This is foreshadowing for both future Rawlings mysteries and baseball history itself By taking readers back to baseball s origins Soos gives readers a glimpse of baseball in two different eras giving people a window into Cincinnati of 1869 when it was the ueen City As usual the case was a fast paced read on a weekend afternoon a perfect way to pass the time as baseball season winds down for the year 375 stars
