Clueless Pete Rose

Joe Jackson’s baseball career can be summed up in four sentences: His nickname was “Shoeless” (he once played a game in his socks because his new cleats gave him blisters). He boasted a .356 career batting average, the third-highest in Major League history. He and seven other Chicago White Sox were banned from baseball for purposely losing the 1919 World Series at the behest of some high-rolling gamblers. And he was dumb.
