ty cobbOn December 18, 1886, Tyrus Raymond Cobb is born in a rural Georgian farming community known as “The Narrows.” He makes his major league debut in 1905 at the age of 18, and plays 24 seasons in the big leagues, retiring with more hits, runs scored, RBI, and stolen bases than any other player in history. His .367 career batting average and 12 batting titles have never been surpassed. In 1936, Cobb will receive 222 votes out of a possible 226 and be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame as part of the first class.
