      Young Tyrus, probably around 17 in 1904---------Tyrus Cobb, 1909---Sporting the medal he received for winning the 1909 BA crown, wearing gloves.

      As a successful professional in his field, he could adopt the dapper, sartorial splendor, if occasion warranted it.

                          Ty Cobb/John McGraw: 1927-----------------------------------March 9, 1928, Spring Training,

                          --------------------------1927----------------------------------------------------- Shibe Park, 1927

                          Ty steals home, April 26, 1927. The hallmark of Ty's career was perfect mechanics. Here he shows perfect technical mechanics. Total relaxation, leaning all the way back, presenting only his shoes to tag.

                          This was the 7th inning against the Red Sox. Opposing pitcher/catcher battery: Tony Welzer/Grover Hartly. Ty was at the front end of a double steal. This was the second of his 3 successful steals of home in 1927. He would only get one more the next season

He was cut adrift by the Athletics, who are unable to continue his high salary-believed to be 60,000 and bonus. Ty (right) is shown with Manger Connie Mack during conference preceding announcement of release in Philadelphia.
