Who was Ty Cobb? What history got wrong.

Who was Ty Cobb? What history got wrong.

Ty Cobb is immortal in baseball lore. He was the first player to be inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame, playing from 1905 to 1928, and ending his career with the highest lifetime batting average, .366, ever recorded in major league baseball. That record has never been equaled.

But most American’s think of him as a racist, low-down cheat, who enjoyed hurting opposing players. Stories abound of how he would sharpen his spikes in order to make them more lethal when sliding into opponents while running the bases. Many people even think of him as a murderer. Stories still circulate of him killing at least three people.
