Lorain City Schools Assistant Superintendent Mic Becerra is a huge Shoeless Joe Jackson fan. Fans have been known to leave baseballs on Shoeless Joe’s grave as a way to pay their respects, and Mr. Beccera recently decided to leave one on behalf of Lorain High.
Joseph Jefferson Jackson, nicknamed “Shoeless Joe”, was a star outfielder who played Major League Baseball in the early 1900s. He currently has the third-highest career batting average in major league history. Jackson still holds the Indians and White Sox franchise records for both triples in a season and career batting average.
