Named the "Georgia Peach" by the legendary sportswriter, Grantland Rice. Cobb was American League batting champion twelve times, nine times in succession (1907 - 1915, 1917 - 1919). He created or equalued more major league records than any player in history and was the first player to be elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. It is little wonder that the New York Times called him,
"The Greatest and Smartest Player
Baseball Has Ever Known."
