Career Highlights and Awards
Travis Calvin Jackson (November 2, 1903 in Waldo, Arkansas - 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 for his entire career. After a mediocre 1923 campaign, he established himself in 1924 by playing in 151 games and hitting .302 (180 for 596) with 11 home runs and 135 singles.

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 and being the Giants Career Leader in Sacrifice Hits (171).

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