OF-Ty Cobb

One of the best players in the history of the game, and easily the game’s premier player before Babe Ruth came along, Ty Cobb is still one of the most iconic figures in baseball.

  • In his second full year in baseball, the Georgia Peach batted a league-leading .350. In 1911 and 1912, he hit over .400 and never hit below .334 the rest of his time in Detroit, including his third .400 plus season late in his career (1922).

    He won the Triple Crown in 1909 and was named the AL MVP (in a forerunner to the award that would begin to be annually presented in the 1930’s).

    Cobb’s career was over before the All-Star era, but even if he never represented the American League in a game, he certainly was the best Tiger of all time.

    Cobb was the hits leader with 4,191 for many decades until Pete Rose surpassed him in 1985. He still holds the highest career batting average in baseball history at .366, and was a charter member of the Baseball Hall-of-Fame in 1936.
