Community Happenings: Week Ending 7/1

Blog Post created by hausmus Employee on Jul 5, 2016

We're a day late for Community Happenings due to many of us taking time for celebrations, but we're back and ready to get you caught up on last week's happenings. This week's fun fact I have to share because I'm a fan of this team and I did not know this happened today, in 1921... Did you know that on this day in 1921 that the Chicago White Sox were accused of throwing the World Series? After Judge Hugo Friend denied a motion to overturn the indictments against the MLB players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series, a trial began with jury selection on this day.


What teams and / or sports are you fan?
