    Interesting article about Ty Cobb (a bit long). The writer set out to write a book (Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty) about Cobb and found contradictions to some of the legends about him being a racist, sharpening his spikes, and so on. Obviously, it’s impossible to know the truth about someone who is basically a legend at this point, but interesting to contemplate another viewpoint, and just reminded me in general that with his baserunning prowess, he’d have been an exciting player to watch play.
