Ty Cobb

The Georgia Peach. A baseball legend. On this episode, we examine one of the greatest baseball players to ever step on a diamond. But we're not discussing his batting average or his ability to steal bases. We're examining (and rating on an 11 point scale) how much of an asshole Ty Cobb was. Enjoy!
