The 1919 Cincinnati Reds season was a season in American baseball. The Reds won the National League pennant, then went on to win the 1919 World Series. The team's accomplishments were overshadowed by the subsequent Black Sox scandal, when it was discovered that their American League opponents, the Chicago White Sox had tried to lose the series.

Regular season[edit]

Despite winning 96 games in the regular season, the Reds had six regulars who batted .276 or lower.[1] The Reds' offensive star was Edd Roush, who won the NL batting title with a .321 average. Heinie Groh hit .310 and finished fourth.
