Joe in Savannah, GA 1932 This picture of Joe was taken in Savannah, Georgia May 7, 1932 and was run in most major newspapers of the day with the copy "What would he do with this bat today?". The article that followed the picture went on to say "All this talk about the 'Lively Ball' of Major League Baseball has a special interest for this reminiscent owner of a modest pressing shop near the Savannah River. He is Joe Jackson, shining diamond star of a little over a decade ago, who still cherishes the bat which was presented to him twenty-four years ago by an admirer in South Carolina. Jackson quietly withdrew from the Major League Baseball picture in 1920." The article goes on to say "He likes to think what he might have done with his bat in the old days if the Major Leagues had then used the lively ball."
