1918 Red Sox at Fenway Park

In 1918, war and a flu pandemic upended the world of sports. While the war forced the World Series between the Chicago Cubs and the Boston Red Sox, pictured, to be moved from October to September, the event itself likely helped spread the disease throughout the city of Boston, according to Johnny Smith, associate professor in the School of History and Sociology. He has co-authored a new book on the era called "War Fever"
