Ty Cobb, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tyrus Raymond "Ty" Cobb (December 18, 1886 – July 17, 1961), nicknamed "The Georgia Peach", was a Major League Baseball (MLB) player. Cobb is considered one of the greatest players ever and is in the Hall of Fame, having received the most votes of any player on the 1936 inaugural Hall of Fame Ballot.

Cobb wrote baseball's record books, setting more than 90 records at one time or another and holding 43 when he retired in 1928. As of 2007, he still holds several records, including highest MLB career batting average with .366 and most career batting titles with 11. After his retirement, he retained many other records for almost a half century or more, including most career major league hits until 1985 (4,189, long believed to be 4,191), most career runs (2,246) until 2001, most career games played (3,035) and at bats (11,434) until 1974, and the modern record for most career stolen bases (892) until 1977.

The greatest of stars during his playing prime, Cobb's legacy as an athlete has sometimes been overshadowed by his surly temperament, passionate racism and aggressive reputation, which was described by the Detroit Free Press as "daring to the point of dementia."

These are some great pictures of Ty Cobb. He looks as mean as I thought he might.
