Shoeless Joe Jackson talks about the Black Sox scandal of 1919

21

"I had been acquitted by a twelve-man jury in a civil court of all charges and I was an innocent man in the records. I have never made any request to be reinstated in baseball, and I have never made any campaign to have my name cleared in the baseball records. This is not a plea of any kind. This is just my story." from the October 1949 issue of Sport Magazine

The Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library will open its doors Saturday, the organization announced today. In addition to tours, the museum and library will celebrate its grand opening with outdoor activities and food. Admission and parking will be free. In 2006, the home of the late Joe Jackson, a Greenville native and former Chicago White Sox star, was dismantled, transported three miles and reassembled across from Fluor Field at the West End. To honor Jackson's career batting average of .356, the house's new address is 356 Field Street. Now serving as the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library, the house will display items chronicling Jackson's life and baseball career. The library will offer a collection of books donated by baseball enthusiasts from across America.
