Ty Cobb Debut August 30, 1905

Comments Off on Ty Cobb Debut August 30, 1905

An 18-year-old Ty Cobb made his Major League debut on August 30, 1905. Cobb became known as “The Georgia Peach” (and probably earned several other less complimentary and more vulgar nicknames). In the first inning of his first game Cobb doubled, facing the New York Highlanders’ (later renamed the Yankees) Jack Chesbro (career 198-132, ERA 2.68).

Twenty three years later on September 3, 1928, Cobb got his 4,191st, and last hit, also a double; facing Washington’s Bump Hadley.
