Lights!      Action!

 

The museum is pleased to announce its support of a feature film under development about legendary baseball player Shoeless Joe Jackson.

Producer Renee James, originally from Greenwood, SC, has worked tirelessly for years developing plans to create a film about Jackson, one of the most beloved ball players in baseball history.  Filming will take place in South Carolina, Georgia, and possibly Chicago.  The movie will premier the latter part of 2019, the 100th year anniversary of the infamous 1919 World Series.

Angelo Pizzo, writer and producer of two popular sports movies, RUDY and HOOSIERS, has begun writing the script.  Pizzo is expected to visit the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Jackson sites in Greenville, SC, in the near future.

Below is the link to Shoeless Joe Productions which gives more information about the upcoming film.  An interview with Academy Award winner Billy Bob Thornton, a project supporter, is included.

According to Thornton, “It’s an important story to tell.”

We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations to the Ty Cobb Museum on its 20th anniversary!

"Ty Cobb and Joe Jackson were fierce competitors on the baseball field, but they had respect and admiration for one another.  Our museums continue that tradition of friendship and esteem."--Arlene Marcley, Founder and President, Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum

  

10TH ANNUAL VINTAGE BASE BALL GAMES

In 2009, the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum in Greenville, SC, and the Ty Cobb Museum in Royston, GA, began an annual tradition of a Vintage Base Ball doubleheader between teams made up of volunteers and fans of each Museum.  The Vintage Games follow 1860s rules and terminology which are enforced by an on-field "judge, including no gloves, no cleats, and no helmets.  With catches on first bounce counting as outs and no walks, the emphasis of these vintage games is on hitting, base-running and defense, and promoting the history of the great game of baseball.

Join us this year at Ty Cobb Field in Royston, GA, when the Shoeless Joes and Georgia Peaches face each other on the field of battle for the 10th consecutive year. 

WHEN:  Saturday, October 20, 2018, first game begins at 11:00am, 30-minute lunch break, followed by the second game.

WHERE:  Ty Cobb Field, behind the Ty Cobb Museum, 461 Cook Street, Royston, GA

Following the games, ballists and cranks are invited to the Ty Cobb Museum for the trophy presentation and refreshments.

For more information, contact:  www.tycobbmuseum.org or www.shoelessjoejackson.org

Y’all Come!  It's free fun!

BRONZE PLAQUE DEDICATED

The 18" x 24" bronze plaque shown below was unveiled at the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum by donors Mike and Lori Wallach.  Located on the brick wall next to the front door of the museum, the plaque is a reminder that although Jackson has yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, he is beloved in his hometown.


 

 


  Pictured below is sportscaster Bob Costas in the museum's gift shop with the late Joe Anders who was a personal friend of Shoeless Joe's.  Anders presented Costas with a framed photo of Shoeless Joe (in framed photo, second from left, ) and Joe Anders (framed photo, far right).
