Encyclopedia > Travis Jackson

Travis Calvin Jackson (November 2, 1903 - July 27, 1987) was a Major League Baseball player during the 1920s and 1930s. His exceptional range at shortstop led to the nickname "Stonewall".


Jackson broke into the major leagues in 1922 with the New York Giants, the team he would play his entire career for. After a mediocre 1923 campaign, he established himself in 1924 by hitting .302 with 11 home runs and 76 RBI.


Playing until 1936, Jackson was regarded as one of the premier defensive shortstops in the league. He was on four National League pennant-winning teams and one World Series champion (1933). He batted .300 or higher six times and, although not known for his production, hit 21 home runs in 1929 and drove in 101 runs in 1934. He finished his career with 135 home runs and a .291 batting average.


Jackson was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1982.
