I think one of them was to him, and it was to center field, but he got to it first. His defense was fine, and his hitting was awesome. He was innocent, and should be in the Hall. There's no evidence that he was involved in throwing any games. He was given money which he did not accept, but tried to return.
8 Men Out page 177 wrote: After they swore [Jackson] in, he began talking. They asked him questions, leading into the story of the fix. He told them of the gradual feeling-out by Gandil and Risberg...They would give him $20,000 for helping out. It was easy; all he had to do was go along with it; let a ball drop a few feet in front of him; not hit the big one with men on. He could look good and still play badly. Twenty thousand dollars. Finally he agreed...

Saying that, I also think itwoul be unfair to elect Jackson and not Rose. So there you have i, a plus and a minus. Overall, they should both be elected
