Ty Cobb the Great

Everything you thought you knew about Ty Cobb is wrong, according to Charles Leerhsen, author of Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty. In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Leerhsen describes why so many people incorrectly believe Cobb was a racist lunatic and speculates on whether Cobb would make the cut in the MLB today.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
