About the Book
Published in 1914, Busting ’Em was the first of three books credited to Ty Cobb the author. Though in fact it was ghostwritten by John N. Wheeler, who also penned
Mathewson’s Pitching in a Pinch, the book fascinates with its insights into Cobb as a public figure. The reader is presented Cobb’s explanation of the beating incident at Hilltop Park, the Baker spiking, and his contentious relationship with teammates. His thoughts--or those he sanctioned--of umpires, his contemporaries, crowds, and strategy are also shared.
This book, long out of print and increasingly hard to find, is essential reading for those who would understand Cobb’s awareness of and investment in the shape of his public image.
