Unban "Shoeless" Joe Jackson

87 Signatures Goal: 100

You know the guy who was supposed to be a Hall of Famer, with a career .356 BA, 3rd highest in Major League History The guy that couldn't read, or couldn't write The guy thats banned from baseball for "supposedly" throwing the World Series I just want to tell you, you do not throw the World Series if you bat .375 (12-32) with 5 Runs, 3 Doubles, 1 HR, 6 RBI in 8 games. Take a look at Chick Gandil, the leader of the scandal. He went 7-30 with a run, a triple, a walk, and 3 strike outs, although he did have 5 RBI's. Not to mention 5-12 with runners in scoring position. So it all comes down to this: How do you ban a guy like Shoeless Joe, when he pretty clearly played very well If he wasn't connected with the scandal, no one would have even thought he would have been in it. All I ask, is if you even slightly agree with me, please sign this. If you are a White Sox fan, please sign this as you can help out the long White Sox history by making a push for Jackson to be unbanned and voted into the HOF. My final point is, sure he has said he threw some games, but did he really He had prefect fielding and didn't let many runners get extra bases.
