Claud "Lefty" Williams , who spent two years developing as a pitcher in the Pacific Coast League for Salt Lake City as well as Sacramento, presents a member of the Salt Lake Red Sox with an award in 1915. Following 1915, the Chicago White Sox purchased Williams’ contract. He is best known for his involvement in the "Black" Sox scandal where he and other players attempted to fix the world series for money. He was consequently banned from baseball for life.
