List of Ty Cobb quotes.

The base paths belonged to me, the runner. The rules gave me the right. I always went into a bag full speed, feet first. I had sharp spikes on my shoes. If the baseman stood where he had no business to be and got hurt, that was his fault.


The crowd makes the ballgame.


The great American game should be an unrelenting war of nerves.
