Pittsburgh Gazette Times, April 9, 1913:
Renewing a quarrel which began here last Saturday, Ty Cobb, Detroit star, and Rutledge Osborne, a member of the Wofford College team…engaged in a rough and tumble fight in a Greenville hotel bedroom last night. Osborne came off second best.
The friends of the “Georgia Peach” say that Osborne took offense at a fancied insult, refused to accept apology [sic], insisted on a fight, and that Cobb in sheer self-defense took Osborne to the room and gave him a spanking.
Efforts were made to keep the affair secret.
I’d love to know what the fancied insult was.
