The place where triples go to die.
"Joseph Jefferson Jackson", nicknamed ""Shoeless Joe"", was an American outfielder who played Major League Baseball in the early part of the 20th century. He is remembered for his performance on the field and for his alleged association with the Black Sox Scandal, in which members of the Chicago White Sox participated in a conspiracy to Match fixing/fix the 1919 World Series/World Series. As a result of Jackson's association with the scandal, Kenesaw Mountain Landis, Major League Baseball's first Baseball Commissioner/commissioner, banned Jackson from playing after the season. Since then, Jackson's guilt has been disputed, and his expulsion from baseball during the prime of his career made him one of the game's legendary figures.
Jackson played for three Major League teams during his 12-year career. He spent – as a member of the Oakland Athletics/Philadelphia Athletics and with the minor league New Orleans Pelicans (baseball)/New Orleans Pelicans before joining the Cleveland Indians/Cleveland Naps at the end of the 1910 season.
