It's all about baseball Cons Can't play baseball in the winter Full Review It’s 1911 and Shoeless Joe Jackson steps up to the plate. He’s a rookie playing for Cleveland and he knows how to please a crowd: hit the ball. At the age of 23 he set the record for highest batting average by a rookie. Just two years later he will lead the American League in hits (197) and batting average (.551). O the glory days! Joe at bat! The crowd yelling, “Give ‘em Dixie! Give ‘em Dixie!” Just eight years later he will be shamed out of baseball, banned for life, denied a place in the baseball Hall of Fame. But, for some baseball fans Shoeless Joe Jackson (Joseph Jefferson Jackson) will always have a place in their field of dreams. There was a madness about the 1919 World Series. Joe Jackson’s team, the Chicago White Sox was playing against the Cincinnati Reds. Some say Jackson and seven other Chicago players took money to throw the game. Some say that many of the accused eight players did throw the game, but Jackson wasn’t in on it. There were arrests after the game and there was a trial. The eight were found not guilty, but they were punished anyway by being banned for life from baseball.

SHOELESS JOE JACKSON: An Interview with Joe Anders Joe Jackson was born in Brandon Mills, South Carolina on July 16, 1887. His beginnings were no different from thousands of other children who grew up around the mill towns of the South in the late 19 th century. As the age of six, Joe swept floors in Brandon Mill, outside of Greenville, South Carolina. His schooling was sporadic at best. Like so many children from the area mill towns, he played a lot of baseball. By the time he was 13 years old, Joe was a regular on the men's team in Brandon. Even then his legend as an extraordinary ballplayer began to grow. He could throw harder, run faster, and hit longer home runs than anyone had ever seen. Eventually, his playing put food on the table. He earned about $2.50 a game by 1905. That was high living for a poor mill town boy. About that time, a local lumberman – the shop foreman – made a special baseball bat for Joe at Brandon Mill. It weighed about 48 ounces and was lacquered with uncounted coats of either tobacco juice or varnish, most likely a bit of both. “Black Betsy” and one or two “sisters” (he called them “Blonde Betsys”) accompanied him for most of his baseball career. Legendary Shoeless Joe Jackson, the greatest player never to make the Hall of Fame, played major league ball from 1908 until he was banned after the 1920 season. He batted over .400 in his first full season with Cleveland. His lifetime batting average was .356, third in baseball history behind Ty Cobb's .367 and Rogers Hornsby's .358.

    From 'Shoeless Joe' Remains a Scapegoat (9/2/99) by Harvey Frommer, with permissions. At the 1999 All-Star game, 98 of the 100 players on the ballot for the All-Century Baseball team were honored with banners hanging at Fenway Park. However, Pete Rose and Shoeless Joe Jackson, two of the best players in the history of the game, were not. "Charlie Hustle" and "Shoeless Joe" are becoming baseball's odd couple - - both ineligible for the Hall of Fame because of a lifetime ban, two of just 15 ever issued by the commissioner of baseball. No person ever permanently banned has ever been reinstated. Most sports fans know a lot about Pete Rose: however, their knowledge about Jackson is sketchy, sometimes inaccurate. So for the record - the facts.

    Shoeless Joe's will, valuable name on it not for sale, court says
    By JONATHAN DUBE Staff Writer
    It's just a name, scrawled on an aging will, sitting in a county vault in Greenville, S.C. But it's worth more than the signatures of Beethoven and Babe Ruth combined. Baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson's signature is among the most valuable in the world so rare that the American Cancer Society and American Heart Association sued the county and state for possession of his will. The charities, beneficiaries of Jackson's estate, hoped to auction it for more than $100,000. But Tuesday they struck out, when the S.C. Supreme Court ruled that his will is a public record and should remain in a public repository. ``Now nobody's going to benefit from the will's existence,'' said Leo Bell, 70, a friend of Jackson's and the charities' attorney. But Ken Woodington, who argued the state's case, said the ruling preserves the integrity of South Carolina's historical records. ``If they had ruled the other way, historical records would be virtually destroyed, as collectors and family members come and strip the vaults for their ancestors' stuff,'' he said.

    By Robert Nishihara Stats from
    I don't know that he actually ever said it was so. Sure, there's a transcript of his Grand Jury testimony.  And although that transcript was at one time missing, presumed to have been stolen, it did reappear later and the contents of that testimony have produced more than enough debate over his intentions during the autumn in question. And he was acquitted (along with seven of his teammates) of all charges stemming from the alleged incident. And he did hit .375 in the Series. But there was no denying the money.  The damned money couldn't be swept aside.  Even if a nation of hopeful baseball fans wanted him to say it wasn't so, the damned money said otherwise.  And said it loudly. And for that, Joseph Jefferson Jackson was banned for life from the game that was essentially his life. But before Arnold Rothstein and the cadres of Charlie Comiskey's lawyers and Eddie Cicotte drilling Morrie Rath in the back with a fastball and the dirty stack of cash that would later ruin his life, Joe Jackson was simply a baseball player, and a great one at that. An unrefined country boy from the hills of South Carolina, Jackson learned the game in the rural atmosphere of his home and worked on perfecting his baseball skills there.  He lugged around a monstrous 48-ounce game bat he called "Black Betsy" and traveled the Carolina countryside playing in mill games and semi-pro leagues hitting equally monstrous home runs. Playing the game he loved in the place he loved made Jackson loathe ever separating the two.  However, when his semi-pro career in Greenville really started to take off, the outside world inevitably came calling.

    80. Famous South Carolinians - Artists & Musicians - Shoeless Joe Jackson
    Shoeless joe jackson is best known to some as the young baseball player Until this day, joe jackson is not allowed in the Pro baseball Hall of Fame.
    Home Educators Government Officials Medical Researchers ... Athletes Jackson, (Shoeless) Joe
    Shoeless Joe Jackson is best known to some as the young baseball player portrayed in the movie, Field of Dreams . He is also known as one of the players accused of throwing the 1919 World Series game because of a bet. It is said that his batting swing was so good, Babe Ruth tried to copy him, and that his fielding was so good, no one dared hit it to his side of the outfield.
    Born in 1889 in the small town of Brandon Mills, South Carolina, Jackson worked the cotton mills as a child instead of attending school. He played baseball for the cotton mill team, making a name for himself at an early age. After getting new spikes, his feet hurt so badly that he refused to play in any shoes; he played an entire game wearing only his socks on his feet.
    The manager of the Philadelphia Athletics saw young Jackson and signed him to the baseball team in 1908. However, he played very little, and in 1910, signed with the Cleveland Indians. For the next three years he led the league with base hits, and his batting averages always hung around the .400 mark. In 1915, he was traded to the Chicago White Sox with high hopes. The White Sox won the American League pennant in 1917 and in 1919 with the help of Jackson. They were heavily favored to win the World Series, but lost the nine game series 5-3. Soon after, talk of a fix circulated, and an investigation was launched. Although the investigation found Shoeless Joe and his teammates innocent, the commissioner of baseball, Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, found the men guilty of intentionally throwing the 1919 World Series. Jackson and his teammates were banned from baseball forever. Until this day, Joe Jackson is not allowed in the Pro Baseball Hall of Fame.
