Joseph "Shoeless Joe" Jackson - Going Home Again


At the end of the 1920 season, Jackson returned to the South, where he played semipro ball in order to survive, all the while hoping he would be reinstated. Ironically, he often made more money playing for unsanctioned teams than he had for the Sox. Jackson and his wife returned to Greenville and opened first a dry cleaning establishment, then a liquor store, which he ran until his death. They lived comfortably, and Jackson continued to deny that he had adjusted his play during the 1919 World Series.
