2013 Baseball Trip: No shoes, black sox, no problem
‘Shoeless’ Joe Jackson Museum-Greenville, SC: While in Greenville, we also visited the ‘Shoeless’ Joe Jackson Museum, which is located right behind Flour Field. The folks who run the museum are the nicest you’d ever meet, and they love their baseball. They stated that they spend more time at the museum than their own homes! They are also extremely knowledgeable about Joe and the history of baseball in the area. The museum is in Joe’s home that he had built-in 1940. Unfortunately, many of his trophies and memorabilia were taken after the death of his wife. It’s believed that family members came to the house and took most those items. It’s a nice little museum and a must for any baseball fan in the area, especially if your taking in a Drive game anyway.
Wow, that is incredible!!! We’re going to try and get to Cooperstown this summer. it’s only 3 1/2 hours away, but damn if we get to Greenville sometime, that’s a stop we’re going to do. Beautiful!
You’ll have a good time at the HOF this summer. Greenville is a great place to visit, too. There are some other historical museums and sites very close by also.
i wish I had read this before I went down to SC!!
I hope you had fun in SC, despite missing the museum. Lots of fun and historic places down that way. I would love to transfer to Greenville if I could.
