Landmark Challenge – Day 10
Shoeless Joe Jackson Memorial Park, Greenville, SC
This historic park located on Greenville’s Westside in the Brandon Mill Community honors Greenville’s rich baseball history. Once part of a thriving textile mill complex, the original park/ball field was home to mill workers who played baseball and competed against other mill teams across Greenville County. Shoeless Joe Jackson grew up in Brandon, played for the mill, and is eulogized today as one of most talented players in major league history.
