History, Comments, Contributions
On September 13th, the Packers became the first major league team to play a game against a team of prisoners inside a prison when they visited the federal penitentiary at Leavenworth, KS and defeated a team of inmates, the White Sox, by a score of 23-1. The New York Giants and New York Yankees would begin to pay regular visits to Sing Sing Penitentiary in the 1920s.
