That "author" should not have been rewarded by having a best selling novel that was made into the movie Cobb. Everything that was said about him was a flat out lie. He was actually a nice guy. He did have a thin skin and got into a few fist fights, but hey...lol

Who Was Ty Cobb? The History We Know That’s Wrong

https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/who-was- ... ats-wrong/



Ya he got bushwhacked by a jealous author. Sad .


Im sure some of his reputation was likely earned however.

Still probably the greatest to ever play the game


Cobb is a top ten guy for sure, maybe top 5 but Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball player ever. I would also put Willie Mays and Ted Williams ahead of Cobb. Okay, top 4 for Cobb but Hank Aaron is right there too. Even though Hammerin' Hank was mainly know as a hitter he was an All Star for 25 years in a row, no small feat. Just my opinion and I will admit that I am in fact a life long Yankee fan. Still, sad to see Cobb get shafted like that.
