In addition to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and Baseball Library, be sure and visit Joe's grave site where visitors leave baseballs, photos, notes and other mementos; the Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Ball Park where Joe first played baseball; and Shoeless Joe Jackson Plaza where a life-size bronze statue of Joe stands on a base made of bricks from the old Comiskey Ball Park in Chicago.   To visit these sites, see the Main Menu under "Directions."  


Sportscaster Bob Costas was a recent visitor at the museum.  Pictured below with Bob in the museum's gift shop is 93-year old Joe Anders who was a personal friend of Shoeless Joe's.  Anders presented Costas with a framed photo of Shoeless Joe (framed photo, second from left, ) and Joe Anders (framed photo, far right).

 


 

It's spring cleaning time at the museum...

Mike and Lori Wallach, from Hawthorn Woods, IL, and Travelers Rest, SC, are big Shoeless Joe fans and great supporters of the museum.  They recently devoted time to cleaning and rearranging the museum's baseball library.  

 


DATE SET FOR 2014 VINTAGE GAMES

The 6th annual vintage baseball doubleheader between the "Shoeless Joes" (representing our museum) and the "Georgia Peaches" (representing the Ty Cobb Museum), will be played on Saturday, October 18, 2014, at Ty Cobb Field, Royston, GA.  Huzzah!

The 2013 Shoeless Joes (below) stand in front of the old Brandon textile mill where Joe Jackson worked as a child.  The vintage games were played on the field where Joe got his start in baseball at the age of thirteen playing for the Brandon mill men's team.
