A Biography


As a boy inthe 1890s, he went looking for thrills in a rural Georgia that still burnedwith the humiliation of the Civil War. As an old man in the 1960s, he dareddeath, picked fights, refused to take his medicine, and drove off all hisfriends and admirers. He went to his deathbed alone, clutching a loaded pistoland a bag containing millions of dollars’ worth of cash and securities. Duringthe years in between, he was, according to Al Stump, “the most shrewd,inventive, lurid, detested, mysterious, and superb of all baseball players.” Hewas Ty Cobb.

Al Stump has redefinedAmerica's perception of one of its most famous sports heroes with this grippinglook at Ty Cobb, a man who walked the line between greatness and psychosis.Based on Stump's interviews with Cobb while ghostwriting the Hall of Famer's1961 autobiography, this account of Cobb's life and times reveals both thedarkness and the brilliance of the “Georgia Peach”.
