Ty Cobb Newsbeat

Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 4-3-2017

Bridgeport Evening Farmer, April 3, 1917:

Ty Cobb declared formally that he would not play another game in the [current exhibition series against the Giants] and Jennings, manager of the Tigers, announced that he had made arrangements to send him to Cincinnati to finish his training with the Cincinnati Reds. This action was taken as a result of the clash between Cobb and Herzog in Dallas on Saturday.
...
Jennings agreed to [Cobb’s] withdrawal and upholds his stand, calling Charley Herzog, Fletcher and others of the New York team, anarchists of baseball.

How many ways to get what you want. Herzog used the best, he used the rest.

On the same page of the same newspaper, Benny Kauff tries and fails to get in on the Herzog-Cobb fight.
