About the Player
Charles August "Swede" Risberg (Reisberg) (13 October 1894 - 13 October 1975) was an American baseball player. He is best known for his involvement in the 1919 Black Sox scandal. Risberg was the assistant to the ringleader of the fix, Chick Gandil.

Risberg debuted on 11 April 1917 at shortstop for the Chicago White Sox. He was a below-average hitter, but due to his superb defensive abilities, he won the full-time job at shortstop, and Buck Weaver was forced to move to third base.

In 1919, Risberg agreed to join a group of White Sox players that planned to intentionally lose the World Series in exchange for monetary payments from a network of gamblers. Risberg received $15,000 for his role in the fix.

For his part in the fix, Risberg, along with seven other players, was made permanently ineligible for Major League Baseball by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis.
