"Highly successful in knitting together this story of the life of a most remarkable and dedicated player - perhaps the most spirited baseball player ever to have graced the diamond." - "Library Journal". "I find little comfort in the popular picture of Cobb as a spike-slashing demon of the diamond with a wide streak of cruelty in his nature. The fights and feuds I was in have been steadily slanted to put me in the wrong...My critics have had their innings. I will have mine now." - Ty Cobb. "Frank, bitter, trend-setting autobiography." - "USA Today Baseball Weekly". "One of the most remarkable sports books ever written." - "Los Angeles Daily News". "The old Tiger still spits and snarls off the pages." - "Cooperstown Review". "Of Ty Cobb let it be said simply that he was the world's greatest ballplayer." - "New York Herald Tribune" (1961 editorial on Cobb's death). This Bison Book edition of "My Life in Baseball" is introduced by Charles C. Alexander, a professor of history at Ohio University, Athens, and the author of a "Biography of Ty Cobb".
