☯ Full Synopsis : "Nearly ninety years have passed since America was rocked by the biggest sports scandal of the twentieth century: the alleged fixing of the 1919 World Series by the Chicago “Black Sox.” Eight ballplayers from one of the greatest teams ever were banished from baseball forever—despite being found innocent in a court of law—foremost among them the legendary Joseph Jefferson Jackson, “Shoeless Joe,” who maintained his innocence until his death. Now, in Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball, Harvey Frommer weaves oral history, court testimony, and sparkling narrative together to re-create the life and times of the illiterate farm boy who became one of the greatest players in baseball history. To read this riveting story is to rediscover a sport and a nation at a crossroads in a time marked by larger-than-life characters, the First World War, and the great pilgrimage from the country to the city. But this is more than an in-depth biography; it is an impassioned but reasoned argument for a reevaluation of this misunderstood man, and it raises new questions about the entire Black Sox scandal. Included for the first time ever is Jackson’s sworn grand jury testimony, complete and unaltered."Article| Harvey Frommer| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Considered by Ty Cobb as "the finest natural hitter in the history of the game,” "Shoeless Joe” Jackson is ranked with the greatest players to ever step onto a baseball diamond. With a career .356 batting average—which is still ranked third all-time—the man from Pickens County, South Carolina, was on his way to becoming one of the greatest players in the sport’s history. That is until the "Black Sox” scandal of 1919, which shook baseball to its core. While many have sympathized with Jackson’s ban from baseball (even though he hit .375 during the 1919 World Series), not much is truly known about this quiet slugger. Whether he participated in the throwing of the World Series or not, he is still considered one of the game’s best, and many have fought for his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. From the author of Turning the Black Sox White (on Charles Comiskey) and War on the Basepaths (on Ty Cobb), Shoeless Joe tells the story of the incredible life of Joseph Jefferson Jackson. From a mill boy to a baseball icon, author Tim Hornbaker breaks down the rise and fall of ?Shoeless Joe,” giving an inside look during baseball’s Deadball Era, including Jackson’s personal point of view of the "Black Sox” scandal, which has never been covered before. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home."Article| Tim Hornbaker| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Born in Austin, Texas, in 1899, Bibb August Falk was the classic stereotype of a Texan, standing six feet. He brimmed with confidence and played the game of baseball with swagger. He played three years of varsity football and baseball at the University of Texas before being signed by the Chicago White Sox following graduation in 1920. Falk reported to the Sox that summer without having played a single minor league game. In just a couple of months, he--an untested rookie--would confront the challenge of replacing Shoeless Joe Jackson, newly banned from organized ball for complicity in the 1919 World Series scandal. Retiring from the major leagues in 1931 after a brilliant career, Falk returned to the University of Texas in 1940 as head baseball coach and became a Longhorn legend. During his 25 years as head coach, his teams won two National Championships, 15 Southwest Conference titles and four co-championships. When Bibb Falk died in June 1989, at the age of 90, he was the last surviving member of the 1920 Chicago White Sox."Article| William A. Cook| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Ray Kinsella is sitting quietly on the back porch of his Iowa farm one evening when he hears the ghostly voice of a baseball announcer who says to him, "If you build it, he will come." Needing no further explanation, Kinsella immediately sees in his mind's eye a baseball field that he is being asked to create in the middle of a corn field. The voice will speak only two other things to Ray: "Ease his pain" and "Go the distance," and yet the dreaming, idealistic man knows just what he is supposed to do. He knows that digging up the corn field in the back of his house will inspire the return of baseball legend Shoeless Joe Jackson, a man whose reputation was forever tarnished by the scandalous 1919 World Series. So opens the award-winning novel by W.P. Kinsella which was the inspiration for the incredibly popular film Field of Dreams starring Kevin Costner. W.P. Kinsella has been called a great writer of baseball novels but this title transcends that description. Kinsella doesn't..."Article| Phil Alden Robinson| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Times were tough for everyone in 1938. The Great Depression had left people with barely enough money for food, much less life's little pleasures. But that didn't stop the kids growing up in textile mill villages across the South from having fun. Ten-year-old Charlie Miller and his pals loved to play baseball. They made balls out of rocks, cotton, and twine, and whittled bats from sturdy pine limbs. Their team was the Smackers, and their archrivals were the Dogtown Dogs. Despite his love for the game, Charlie was not very good at it. Splinter Rawlings, village bully and leader of the Dogs, taunted Charlie and made fun of him. "You couldn't hit a ball with a two-by-four," Splinter would say to him. That hurt Charlie's feelings, and he vowed to become a better hitter. Charlie heard about a local man named Jackson who had played baseball in the Big Leagues and sought him out for advice. Little did Charlie know that his game was about to change, for the old man was a legend—a legend called "Shoeless Joe.""Article| Arlene Marcley| Statement ..."
