Ty Cobb Newsbeat
Thursday, June 30, 2016
Pittsburgh Press, June 30, 1916:
I don’t really heckle athletes, but I’m certain that if I read this in 1916, I would go out of my way to mock Cobb incessantly every time he came to my town.

Ty being Ty.

But what about Cobb’s 19th-century Southern roots? How could someone born in Georgia in 1886 not be a racist? What I found—and again, not because I am the Babe Ruth of researchers, but because I actually did some research—is that Ty Cobb was descended from a long line of abolitionists. His great-grandfather was a minister who preached against slavery and was run out of town for it. His grandfather refused to fight in the Confederate army because of the slavery issue. And his father was an educator and state senator who spoke up for his black constituents and is known to have once broken up a lynch mob.

Washington Times, March 24, 1916:
Ty Cobb was kind of a tosser, but I don’t think they meant it the same way I do.
Kudos to the kid and his family, who could have sold the ring and made a bunch of money.

On April 20, 1912, Ty Cobb christened Frank Navin’s new $300,000 ballpark by scoring the Detroit Tigers’ first-ever run at Navin Field. He did it in typically dramatic style, swiping home in the bottom of the first inning against Cleveland’s Vean Gregg. It was the first of a record eight steals of home the Peach would pull off that summer.

Toledo News-Bee, March 11, 1916:
Don’t look at it as the loss of a $600 ring, Ty. Look at it as the end of a ten-year lease at $5 a month.

Joe Orlando, the president of Professional Sports Authenticator in Newport Beach, California, who verified the find, said it is “spectacular” and “miraculous” to have come across such a cache.
“I am not sure if any other baseball card find is more remarkable than this new discovery,” Orlando said in a statement.

Bridgeport Evening Farmer, December 31, 1915:
Lannin got this one exactly right. Kauff hit .357/.447/.523 in his two Federal League seasons, but .287/.357/.413 in the NL. That’s still a good player - a center fielder with a 136 OPS+ is nothing to sneeze at - but it ain’t Ty Cobb.
