Quest to clear Shoeless Joe Jackson
September 9, 2009
Two Chicago attorneys have joined the ranks of those trying to clear "Shoeless" Joe Jackson's name.
Paul Duffy, who represents the fledgling Chicago Baseball Museum organization, and Daniel Voelker, who has sat on the group's board of directors, take exception with assertions made about Jackson in the 1963 book by the late Eliot Asinof, "Eight Men Out." The book, later made into a popular film of the same name, is about the eight White Sox players suspected of fixing the 1919 World Series.
