Heart of a Tiger

ebook

The grandson of the legendary baseball player reveals another side of "a fascinating, severely flawed sports icon" (Booklist).

Ty Cobb's grandson Herschel saw a side of him that very few others did. While baseball fans were familiar with Cobb's infamously cold, competitive nature—and his relationship with his own children was deeply difficult—Cobb, in his later years, embraced the opportunity to form a loving bond with his grandchildren during their summertime visits.

In this moving memoir, Herschel Cobb reveals how his grandfather, after the devastating loss of two sons, shared his gentler side with Herschel and his siblings. Herschel's own parents, a cruel, abusive father and an adulterous, alcoholic mother, filled his childhood with turmoil. But "Granddaddy" offered the stability, love, and guidance that Herschel desperately needed.

"Elegantly written and genuinely moving," this story of their relationship presents a unique perspective on this larger-than-life man (Publishers Weekly).

"An unforgettable story . . . that will alter how you feel about baseball's most demonized star." —Tom Stanton, author of Ty and the Babe
