Joe Jackson never cheated the game and is unjustly being kept out of Cooperstown. The only thing he's guilty of is knowing about the fix. In an age where steroid cheats are given 2nd chances, and they are real cheats, surely Joe Jackson deserves a 2nd chance. As does Pete Rose.

If the owners can have the ball park named for their cheating asses we should forgive their players.

Joe was a functional illiterate but played the game hard every day. His WS numbers don't reflect those of a man trying not to win. He signed the agreements because he was a team player and went along with the guys, not knowing exactly what he was doing. This man's numbers and God given talent should put him in the Hall. Mr. Manfredi, please seriously consider reversing one of the biggest "wrongs" and let Joe Jackson in the Hall of Fame. Thank you for your time.

Shoeless joe Jackson was an amazing baseball player that got caught up in the middle of a bad situation. He played with heart during that World Series.

Bad things happen to good people. Sometimes you don't know what to do but mind your own business and try your hardest to do your best. Shoeless Joe was that kind of person. He should not continue to suffer the disgrace that those who actually committed the offense should. Baseball is an admirable sport. To stand up for what you know is right, in the midst of trusted teammates who choose to break the covenant bond of true sportsmanship is not something to be punished but instead to be held in a higher esteem.
