5) Shoeless Joe Jackson

Jackson has the third-highest lifetime batting average in Major League Baseball history at .356. Babe Ruth called him the greatest hitter he ever saw. The White Sox acquired Jackson in 1915 from the Cleveland Indians. During his years with the White Sox, he hit .340 with 30 HR, and, in the Dead Ball Era, he was considered a beast. If he would have played another five years for the Sox he might top this list.
