(Video) Ty Cobb biographer says baseball great was not a racist or a dirty player
Wrong. Wrong. And wrong again.
Charles Leerhsen recounts a fierce competitor who has been maligned in "Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty."
Before there was "fake news" there were fake biographies, such as the one written by Al Stump--which was dramatized in the Tommy Lee Jones vehicle Cobb.
On my way to work yesterday I listened to Leerhsen correct the record about Cobb, focusing on--wait for it--facts, during an appearance on the Dennis Prager show.
Here's Leerhsen in a Prager University video.
