Joseph Jackson was born in Greensville, South Carolina, on July 16, 1887. He was a phenomenal natural hitter who went on to play for the Chicago White Sox. Jackson earned his nickname by once playing in stockings as his baseball shoes weren’t broken in. He had a career .356 batting average, one of the highest ever, and was banished from the sport for his involvement in fixing a World Series outcome. Jackson died on December 5, 1951, in South Carolina.
