Eddie Cicotte

"Knuckles" was one of the first known knuckleball specialists in major league history, but he remains better known as one of the eight players banned for life after fixing the 1919 World Series. Ciccote was remarkably effective in his nine seasons with the White Sox, leading the American League in wins and ERA in 1917.
