(Shoeless Joe) Jackson was tried for throwing the (1919) Series, and a jury acquitted him. However, Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned Jackson. Baseball was then riddled with gambling, and Landis used this broad stroke to give the sport some credibility. Jackson was no villain; he was probably more an innocent victim or a scapegoat.
