Forlagets beskrivelse
Considered by Ty Cobb as the finest natural hitter in the history of the game, Shoeless Joe Jackson is ranked with the greatest players to ever step onto a baseball diamond. With a career .356 batting averagewhich is still ranked third all-timethe man from Pickens County, South Carolina, was on his way to becoming one of the greatest players in the sports history. That is until the Black Sox scandal of 1919, which shook baseball to its core.While many have sympathized with Jacksons ban from baseball (even though he hit .375 during the 1919 World Series), not much is truly known about this quiet slugger. Whether he participated in the throwing of the World Series or not, he is still considered one of the games best, and many have fought for his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.From the author of Turning the Black Sox White (on Charles Comiskey) and War on the Basepaths (on Ty Cobb), Shoeless Joe tells the story of the incredible life of Joseph Jefferson Jackson. From a mill boy to a baseball icon, author Tim Hornbaker breaks down the rise and fall of Shoeless Joe, giving an inside look during baseballs Deadball Era, including Jacksons personal point of view of the Black Sox scandal, which has never been covered before.Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
