Ty Cobb. The Georgia Peach. I have been fascinated by Ty Cobb and the things that he did both on and off the field for several years now, and I do not pretend to be unbiased. If it seems that I have not presented a balanced view of Cobb and his activities, it is because I don't think I can present a balanced view.
However, this does not mean that I in any way condone, support, or defend some of Cobb's more objectionable behavior. I simply wish to report on Cobb's story as far as baseball is concerned. His is a story that must be told, and this is the medium which I have chosen to tell this version of Cobb's story.
I have researched this page quite thoroughly, and, to the best of my knowledge, the facts of his life are accurate as reported here. If there are indeed any errors, please contact me. Although the reporting isn't unbiased and doesn't pretend to be, I do not wish to spread half-truths and misinformation.
That being said, here is the fruit of my labor, and I hope you enjoy it.
Compiled from the most frequently asked questions regarding Cobb and this page (Like what number he wore).
Obviously I did not find all this out firsthand. I had lots of help. These books are all fantastic, and I recommend them all for further reading. Most of them are available at your local public library.
