I've been watching Ken Burns' Baseball documentary and all the historians they interview seem to be real big apologists for Shoeless Joe. Tragic story.

I learned the reason he couldn't read or write was he was working in the mills from age 6.

Black Sox name came from dirty uniforms because players refused to pay Comiskey 25 cents to wash them.

Museum covers his Cleveland years. He was seny to Chicago after he was injured at an Ohio beach and they thought he was done.
