Fact of the Day (FOTD): “Shoeless Joe” Jackson was one of the eight White Sox players alleged to have fixed the 1919 World Series.  He maintained his innocence until his death.  He currently has the third highest batting average in MLB history at .356.  He is not in the hall of fame due to his alleged involvement in the scandal.
