1919 Chicago Black Sox Estate LA Custom Fitted
Although many believe the Black Sox name to be related to the dark and corrupt nature of the conspiracy, the term Black Sox may have already existed before the fix was investigated. There is a (probably apocryphal) story that the name "Black Sox" was given because parsimonious owner Charles Comiskey refused to pay for the players' uniforms to be laundered, instead insisting that the players themselves pay for the cleaning. The players refused, and the subsequent series of games saw the White Sox play in progressively dirtier uniforms, as dust, sweat, and grime collected on the white, woolen uniforms until they took on a much darker shade.
