Reporter The myth and reality of Joe Jackson

All my life I’d heard of Shoeless Joe Jackson, and any time his name was mentioned the phrases “Black Sox scandal” and “he was innocent” usually appeared in the same sentence.

But until I came to South Carolina — and discovered Anderson was getting a minor league baseball team that would be called the Joes — I never bothered to do any research on the man himself.
