"Shoeless Joe" Jackson was banned from major league baseball based on unsubstantiated allegations of accepting bribes to throw the 1919 World Series. Joe hit .375 with a.563 slugging percentage that series and had 12 hits including three doubles, a home run, and six rbi’s. Joe has the third highest batting average (.356) all time behind Ty Cobb (.366) and Rogers Hornsby (.359). Jackson remains on MLB's ineligible list which automatically precludes his election to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. In November 1999, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a symbolic resolution lauding Jackson's sporting achievements and encouraging MLB to rescind his ineligibility. Commissioner Bud Selig stated at the time that Jackson's case was under review but no decision was issued during Selig's tenure. In 2015, the Shoeless Joe Jackson Museum formally petitioned Commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement, on grounds that Jackson had "more than served his sentence" in the 95 years since his banishment by Landis. Manfred denied the request after an official review. In 2020, ESPN reported that MLB had shifted its policy and that the league "has no hold on banned players after they die because the ineligible list bars players from privileges that include a job with a major league club." It is unclear how this will affect Jackson's Hall of Fame prospects. Joe Jackson currently has the third-highest career batting average in major league history. In 1911, he hit for a .408 average which is still the sixth-highest single-season total since 1901 which marked the beginning of the modern era for baseball. In 1999, he ranked number 35 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Baseball Players and was nominated as a finalist for the Major League Baseball All-Century Team. The fans voted him as the 12th-best outfielder of all-time.
