Undoing the Lies About Ty Cobb

This is an absolutely incredible, revisionist story by investigative journalist Charles Leerhsen in Imprimus, a publication of Hillsdale College, on the real Ty Cobb and how his life and career was entirely distorted and misrepresented by mythologists, sensationalists, and the monster Ken Burns, the painfully mainstream TV “historian.”

Through research, fact-seeking, and “shoe leather reporting,” Leerhsen accidentally stumbled upon the great character of Cobb and exposes the sensationalism and falsehoods that have floated unchallenged for decades. His book, Ty Cobb: A terrible Beauty, is available on Amazon.

Cobb’s autobiography was hijacked and made up by Al Stump, a guy with a long history as a liar and fabricator. Cobb was painted as an “avowed racist” when that label had become pc fashionable (when all documented evidence says otherwise). Additionally, Ken Burns used amateur-stereotyping sources to destroy Cobb’s character in his Baseball┬ádocumentary.
