1923 Letter To Shoeless Joe Jackson About Reinstatement
91 Years Ago Today - July 16, 1923
Your letter, which is dated 7-29, came here in my absence and through an error in forwarding, was delayed in coming to my attention.
Before I can pass upon your application for reinstatement, it will be necessary for you to forward to me for consideration in that connection, a full statement in detail of your conduct and connection with the arrangement for the “throwing” of the World’s Series of 1919. I feel I should say to you that there will be no reinstatement of any player who had any connection therewith.
Very truly yours,
Kenesaw M. Landis”
