1919-2019 The Centennial
Recently the museum was pleased to host ESPN's popular journalist, Don Van Natta, Jr. The two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and a film crew spent three days in Greenville learning about Shoeless Joe's personal and professional life. Van Natta's report will air on ESPN's docu-series BACKSTORY during the 2019 World Series. A Shoeless Joe fan, Van Natta remarked with a smile, "Shoeless Joe has his own Hall of Fame...the museum!"

1919-2019 The Centennial

“I asked to be suspended before the world series game of 1919. I didn’t want to play after I heard what was going on. But I had to play. And I did play. Look at the records I made in that series. Look at Buck Weaver’s too, and you don’t need any more proof that we played.” --Joe Jackson

Here's the pitch...The teams will take the same field today at 11:00 AM, where a young Jackson got his start in textile league baseball—the Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Ball Park, 406 West Ave, Greenville, SC. “Judge” Rex Darnell will enforce the 1860’s rules which include no cleats, no gloves and no helmets. With catches on first bounce counting as outs and no walks, the emphasis of the vintage games is on hitting, base-running and defense. Free admission and free parking. Pre-game entertainment by the PitchHitters. Scottie Dogs Mobile Catering, LLC will be selling hotdogs, or you can bring a picnic lunch and lawn chairs and enjoy an old-fashioned day at the ball field! HUZZAH!
