Description

Ty Cobb's life is a fascinating study of extremes. His professional highs are astonishing: During his career, he set 123 records. His lifetime batting average of .367 has never been surpassed, and he hit over .300 for 23 straight seasons. But there was a dark shadow looming over these accomplishments - his desire to win at all costs led to charges of violent behavior and playing dirty, and he was even accused of using his spikes as weapons against opposing fielders. Off the field stands a legacy of uncontrolled rage, brutal assaults, and both public and private embarrassment. ""Ty Cobb"" is an engrossing new biography that sheds candid light on a complicated figure who is both a celebrated athlete and a troubled human being.
