I believe it was both. Something like his mother slept with a Black fellow. Covers all the bases, so to speak.

But I believe Ty came around later in life to the realization he was an asshole.

Any politician commenting on why people don't trust the media ought to be hauled away. I mean, funny how they never discuss ehy THEY aren't trusted.

Anyone tells you "be like Ty Cobb," you grab any large blunt object and start swinging as hard as you can. A baseball bat only makes it ironic.

'The corporate media's been throwing curveballs, but they can't get anything past this batter.'

Courts sure like striking your ass out though, and just curb stomped your anti-First Amendment bullshiat, guess that's why you don't like the media because they report you getting bent over by a court, fudging your COVID numbers, going after a whistleblower...

Kinda makes sense now.

Maybe the media should throw at him and bean him.

Long before entering politics, Gov. Ron DeSantis was an accomplished baseball player. He learned the game in the Sunshine State, complete with a trip to the Little League World Series. DeSantis would eventually take the diamond for Yale University.

Wow, should have stuck to baseball. asshole.

Ty Cobb once ate a child. A whole child. Now, some observations on race

I got about 3 paragraphs in before I stopped reading. If I wanted to watch someone slobber this hard over a middle-aged white guy's knob, I'd just go to Pronhub...

Actually, he played college ball at a major university.  You don't do that without out having some real talent.  In my area, it takes a ton of talent just to make a 5A high school team and you have to be the allstar out of a group of allstars to make college.

Here's hoping some MLBers of conscience speak out or at least take knees while playing in Florida.

I don't know how that ever made it before a judge. Anyone who took social studies in 5th grade knows that the First Amendment doesn't apply to private companies like Facebook.

The racist thing is debatable coming mostly from one hack source

The asshole part is from everybody who saw, or plated with or against him

For those who want more of a personal touch, an auction is still in process for autographed cards.

Yeah, I'm going to be waiting to donate until I can be personally touched by DeSantis.

Beating a guy up because he said yo mamma slept with a black guy does NOT make you an anti-racism crusader.

Ty's entire family were abolitionists. The narrative that he was racist is flimsy, at best.
 
2022-05-24 1:37:26 PM  
This is awesome, and so is watching the frenzied hate he's getting from many on the left who know he stands a good chance of being the next president.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of DeSantis' haters plan to support him by buying his cards for the investment value alone

I've heard that the entire narrative of "Ty Cobb was racist" was made up by a reporter who held a grudge against him.  After Cobb died he wrote a "biography" of him full of complete lies and nonsense; because Cobb had kept to himself for his entire life and not much was known about him, later writers believed it because there were no competing opinions.  Can't seem to find that article for the life of me though.

As for Cobb being an asshole...after he was suspended a game for beating up the heckler, the entire Tigers team went on strike and refused to play that game.  Doesn't sound like he was much of an asshole to his teammates at least.

I don't know, some pretty solid numbers at Yale.

"This spring he has gotten off to another fast start, currently leading the team in batting average (.465), hits (20), slugging percentage (.581), doubles (5, tied with Darren Beasley '03) and on-base percentage (.521)."

it would be pretty cool to put his card up on the mantel next to the Trump coins and then burn the house down.

This isn't the article I was thinking of but it makes a lot of the same points.  It's titled simply "Ty Cobb Was Not a Racist."

Al Stump, one of the least trustworthy writers in sports history.

In addition to a biography that was more fantasy than fact, he wrote an article about the end of Cobb's life that was a complete fabrication.
