Get Joe Jackson in the Hall of Fame
- by: Kaylee Holt

The 1919 world series was the Chicago White Sox against the Cincinnati Reds. Some gamblers paid some of the players on the white sox to lose on purpose. One of those men was "Shoeless" Joe Jackson. Some of the other men said Jackson was in before confirming it with Jackson himself. Jackson tried to refuse the money twice. He tried to report it to the owner of the white sox, Charles Comiskey. He didn't do anything. He even tried to sit out the series, but he was forced to play. He played one of his best games ever and was innocent, but he and his companions were banned from any thing to do with baseball for the rest of his life. He had the third best batting average of all time, but after the scandal no one wanted him to be in the hall of fame. Baseball was his love. It would make him so happy to be in the hall of fame.

Dear baseball Hall of Fame,
Shoeless Joe Jackson was an amazing player. He really deserves to be in the hall of fame after all he's done in his baseball career. Jackson was an innocent man, many people can agree with that. Please take a look at this. Please consider our request.
