Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library

Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library Review

This collection is housed in the former home of baseball great Joe Jackson. Jackson, along with seven other White Sox players, was accused of throwing the 1919 World Series. Though he was found not guilty, Jackson was banned from playing baseball. The museum has records, artifacts, photographs, and a film, along with a library of baseball books donated from fans around the country. At the end of each summer, staffers challenge their peers at Georgia's Ty Cobb Museum to a vintage baseball game.
