"We're Shoeless on a shoestring!"
In addition to the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum, 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."
The 7th annual vintage ball games between the Shoeless Joes of the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum and the Georgia Peaches of the Ty Cobb Museum, were played on Oct 24, 2015, at the Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Ball Park in Greenville, SC. Both teams played well, but the Shoeless Joes won the trophy for the second year in a row. HUZZAH!
BRONZE PLAQUE DEDICATED
On July 11, 2015, 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).
