George Daniel “Buck” Weaver (August 18, 1890 - January 31, 1956) batted .324 with 11 hits, including four doubles during the scandalous 1919 World Series as the Cincinnati Reds upset the Chicago White Sox in what would become the Black Sox Scandal. Buck was a member of the 1917 World Series champion White Sox. Weaver was an agile and athletic shortstop and third baseman that played his entire career with the White Sox (1912-1920) before being banned for life from baseball after the 1920 season by Commissioner Judger Kennesaw Mountain Landis for knowing of the “fix” and not coming forward. With support of the numbers Weaver posted, advocates for Buck have petitioned the commissioner’s office on numerous occasions for his reinstatement, both while he was living and after. Buck Weaver retired with a .272 career batting average adding 1,308 hits, 623 runs, 420 RBI and 173 stolen bases.
