Shoeless Joe Jackson made a mistake and was banned from baseball for life. Sometimes, in the Garden Lounge, the special jukebox lets a customer go back in time to a mistake and fix it. Shoeless Joe never had a chance to let the jukebox help him fix his mistake, but instead it allowed Shoeless Joe to do something even more important: Help a child become a better adult. Black Betsy first appeared in the anthology Alternate Outlaws from TOR Books edited by Mike Resnick.
