Some say Shoeless Joe Jackson was the greatest hitter ever. But Shoeless Joe had a partner: his bat, Black Betsy. And if not for the faithful Black Betsy, Joe might never even have made it to the major leagues.
This is the story of two great partners in baseball history -- Shoeless Joe Jackson and his bat, Black Betsy.
