LOU BRISSIE TO BE HONORED
Leland Victor "Lou" Brissie is a favorite of ours here at the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum. A former starting pitcher with the Philadelphia Athletics (1947-1951) and the Cleveland Indians (1951-1953), Lou was badly wounded in WWII. After two years and undergoing 23 major operations he was able to return to baseball with a metal brace on his leg. Following his major league career, Lou became president of the American Legion baseball program.
To honor Lou, the Ware Shoals (SC) School District #51 has announced it will name their high school baseball field in his honor. On Veterans' Day, Monday, November 11, 2013, at 11:00am, a ceremony will be held in the grandstands of Riegel Stadium, on the campus of Ware Shoals High School. Everyone is invited to come out and show appreciation for our brave veterans and to honor Lou Brissie, a man who has distinguished himself as a patriot, an athlete and humanitarian.
The "Georgia Peaches" win the 2013 Vintage Game trophy!
Congratulations to the Ty Cobb Museum's team, the "Georgia Peaches," for winning the 5th Annual Vintage Base Ball Game against the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum's team, the "Shoeless Joes." The teams were tied neck 'n neck going into an extra winning when the Peaches took control and won. It was just good old-fashioned fun for all! Hip-hip-HUZZAH! Below: The Georgia Boys and one sweet Southern belle named Autumn who was voted MVP.
Below, the Shoeless Joes team fielded visiting players from Chicago, NM, PA, FL, NC and SC. They all wanted a chance to play on the field where Shoeless Joe got his start in baseball at the age of 13 playing with the men's team for Brandon Textile Mill. In the background is the old mill. The team stands on the field where Shoeless Joe played ball and wowed the crowds with his stinging hits and amazing throws.
