Ty Cobb Newsbeat

Topeka State Journal, November 23, 1916:
Unfortunately, this is probably a lost film, as the Library of Congress doesn’t have a copy. Reviews were mixed, but I tend to believe Broadway critic Ward Morehouse, who called it “absolutely the worst flicker I ever saw”.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, September 7, 1916:
Well, that certainly would have made for an exciting walkoff win. I always hear that Ty Cobb had both blazing speed and a level of confidence that bordered on insanity, but it still blows me away when I read stories about specific incidents.

Piling on Phat Albert.
“Frank Thomas was a first-ballot HOFer, but in some respects he might be modestly underrated as a hitter. I suspect it’s because Thomas, like Pujols, endured an extended decline phase that began after his last truly great season (at age 32). But unlike Pujols, Thomas was actually a very good hitter deep into his 30s; Pujols (and the Angels) would kill for this kind of production.”

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.
