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

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).
