One of the greatest

Yes, he’s a prick, but he sure can hit. God Almighty, that man can hit!

–Babe Ruth, as quoted in The Sporting News (12 July 1950)

Ty Cobb is one of the great natural forces of Baseball.

He is testament to how far you can get simply through will.

–John Thorn

He was the strangest of all our national sports idols.

But not even his disagreeable character could destroy the image of his greatness as a ballplayer.

–Jimmy Cannon

When I began playing the game, baseball was about as gentlemanly as a kick in the crotch.

–Tyrus Raymond “Ty” Cobb
