    Amanda (Chitwood) Cobb---(Ty's mother)

    Born: January 15, 1871, Georgia
    Died: October 19, 1936, Atlanta, GA, age 65,

    Father: Caleb C. Chitwood, born Habersham, Georgia, May 28, 1832, died Georgia, November 24, 1893; Mother: Sicily V. (Sisley) (Mize), born Franklin, GA, March 16, 1841, died Franklin, GA, March 24, 1897. Sicily married Caleb September 3, 1870. Amanda and her sister Eunice came from their union.

    Her father, Caleb Chitwood, was the largest landowner in the area. He had fought in the Civil War for the Confederacy. He had enlisted in 1862. He was captured at Vicksburg, MS, after its 6-week siege, on July 4, 1863, and then paroled on July 8, 1893.. He broke his oath to never take up arms against the Union again. He was captured a second time in Raleigh, North Carolina, near the close of the war. He had enlisted as a private but made it to Captain.

    Amanda married Ty's father when she was only 15 years & 26 days old, had Ty when she was 15. February 11, 1886. She mistakenly shot Ty's father twice with a pistol, believing he was an intruder. Cynics have always suggested she was having an affair behind his back, but such suspicions were never supported by any evidence in all the following years. Everyone believes that tragic accident was the defining event that stoked Ty's competitive fires, (along with his rookie hazing).

    William Herschel Cobb---Ty's father

    Born: February 23, 1863, Cherokee County, NC
    Died: August 9, 1905, Royston, GA, age 44,---d. accidentally shot to death by wife, who mistook him for an intruder.

    William Cobb was a Scotch-English educator. He was originally a traveling school teacher. He was the publisher & editor of the Royston Record, a weekly, local newspaper. He was elected to the Georgia State Senate. He was also the local Post Master, Mayor of Royston, Franklin County's 1st school commissioner. He was also a cotton farmer.

    William arrived in Georgia from North Carolina around 1885, in Banks County, & began teaching. He had graduated from the North Georgia Agricultural college. He also served as principal of the high schools at Lavonia, Commerce, Carnesville & Royston, in that order.

    William was elected by large majority as senator from the 35th senatorial district. Was elected county school commissioner of Franklin county. Was a Mason, and a member of the Baptist church.

    William Herschel Cobb was a college graduate and school-teacher who moved from town to town in northern Georgia until settling in Royston in the early 1890s. W.H. was well respected by the townspeople and aspired for the U.S. Congress, having held a seat in the Georgia State Senate.

    On February 11, 1886, at age twenty, he married 15-year-old Amanda Chitwood. Due to her young age, she did not bear a child until December 18, 1886, when Tyrus Raymond was born. W.H. was to father two more children with Amanda—John Paul in 1888 and Florence Leslie in 1892.

    W.H. eventually bought a 100-acre farm in Royston to supplement his teaching income. It was on this farm that he taught Ty the values of hard work and perseverance. It was also in those fields that Ty grew strong and developed his relationship with his father. When W.H. saw that Ty displayed a knack for farming and its economics, the two grew closer. "It was the sweetest thing in the world to be fully accepted by my father. All at once, he was willing to hear my ideas, discuss them, and even exchange opinions" (Cobb, 43).

    When Ty was not working the farm for his father, he was honing his baseball skills. W.H. greatly disapproved of Ty playing baseball, fearing that his firstborn would become a drunken womanizer like the stereotypical big league ballplayers of the day. However, when Ty, at 17, approached his father to ask for his blessing to try out for the South Atlantic League (Sally League) team in Augusta, W.H. reluctantly acquiesced. He figured that it would be best for his son to get the baseball out of his system and return home to pursue a career as a doctor, lawyer, or military man.


    The Death of W.H. Cobb
    In the summer of 1905, with Ty off pursuing his baseball dreams, rumors began to circulate about the fidelity of Amanda. At 33, Amanda had already been married for more than 20 years and might have longed for a change. Apparently disturbed about the persistent rumors, W.H. devised a plan to determine once and for all the faithfulness of his wife.

    On the night of August 8, 1905, he told her that he would be going out of town for a few days. That night, with Ty playing ball in Augusta and the other two children at friends' houses, Amanda locked the doors and windows. W.H. returned with a pistol. When she saw a shadowy figure outside, she fired her pistol through the glass window, twice, killing him.

    Ty had always loved and revered his father, claiming that he was the "only man who ever made me do his bidding" (Ty Cobb, by Charles Alexander, 1984, pp. 233). Among the last things that Ty's father bid him to do was "Don't come home a failure." It is quite possible that his father's traumatic death spurred Cobb to play baseball the way he did.

    Despite being the most educated and important man in his town, William Herschell Cobb was more than that to his son. Below is a letter he wrote to Tyrus on January 2, 1902.

    "Tyrus, Dear Boy--
    The first snow of the year of account is down today. It is two inches I reckon. It is all of a round fine hail not a single feathery flake, some lodge on the limbs of the trees. Our wheat and oats have stood the winter all right, wheat is up nicely. We are all snowed in today principally because of the cold weather. Hardly a sound has been heard today. It is nearly six o'clock. I knew the past cold weather would furnish you with some fine scenery up there and I am glad you have been receptive of its austere beauty and solemn grandeur, as to color, sound, and picturesque contour or outline. That is a picturesque and romantic country with solitude enough to give nature a chance to be heard in the soul. The presence of man and the jargon of artificiality and show do not crowd out the grand aspect of God's handiwork among those everlasting hills covered with its primeval forest, [do] not hush the grand oratorios of the winds, nor check the rush of her living leaping waters.

    To be educated is not only to be master of the printed page but be able to catch the messages of star, rock, flower, bird, painting and symphony. To have eyes that really see, ears that really hear and an imagination that can construct the perfect from a fragment. It is truly great to have a mind that will respond to and open the door of the soul to all the legions of thoughts and symbols of knowledge and emotions that the whole universe around us brings to us.

    Be good and dutiful, conquer your anger and passions that would degrade your dignity and belittle your manhood. Cherish all the good that springs up in you. Be under the perpetual guidance of the better angel of your nature. Starve out and drive out the demon that lurks in all human blood and ready and anxious and restless to arise and reign.

    Be good.
    Yours affectionately,
    W. H. Cobb

    An excerpt from Charles Alexander's book, 'Ty Cobb', 1984, pp. 222.
    "In the late 1930s Ty, Jr. had finally settle down. Deciding on a career in medicine, he gained admission to the Medical College of South Carolina at Charleston. In 1942 he finished his M. D. with a specialty in gynecology and obstetrics, married Mary Frances Dunn of Datona Beach, Florida, an set up practice at Dublin, Georgia. There he continued to practice and live with his wife and children until the brain tumor was discovered in 1951. Not long before he died, Ty, Jr., the boy who had not liked baseball, was finally reconciled with his famous father."

    "One doctor who taught and remembered Ty Jr. in Augusta, Harry Pinson, recalled, "He called his father every name in the book. I knew that his father had cut off his medical school financial aid." (According to Ty Jr.'s teenage friend, Billy Calhoun, it was his father, Frank Calhoun, who loaned Ty Jr. the money to finish his medical school education.) (Ty Cobb: Safe At Home, by Don Rhodes, 2008, pp. 69.)

    Dr. Ty Cobb was a Dublin, GA doctor until 1951, when he was diagnosed with malignant brain tumor. His father paid to have him treated unsuccessfully by New York brain specialists. Dr. Cobb returned to the Menlo Park, CA, home of his mother, who looked after him until his death.

    The Cobb home in Augusta, Georgia in 1924. Much more modest than some other rich folk lived. Looks like Ty and Charlie on the front porch with the kids.


    Another shot of the same house in Augusta, located on Williams Street.
    This photo is taken from Don Rhodes' 2008 book on Ty Cobb, entitled, 'Save at Home'. It's a great read. I highly recommend it!

    Ty's Atherton home. He moved his family into this Spanish Mission style villa in 1932. It was located at 48 Spencer Lane. It had 15 rooms, 7 bedrooms, with swimming pool, guest house, and servants quarters. Was several acres. Ty's wife, Charlie lived here until August, 1939, when she moved into her own apartment in adjoining Menlo Park, CA.
    When I arrived from NYC in California October 9, 1979, one of my early acts was to drive over to this house. I parked across the street and meditated there, like a shrine for about half an hour.

    Paul Krichell and Ty Cobb.

    In his 1961 autobiography Ty told a story which I wonder if it is true. Here is what he said.

    "American League catchers were out to stop my base-running. The St. Louis receiver, Paul Krichell, had a vicious habit of hooking my leg when I slid into the plate and flipping me over so that I scraped up dirt with my face. The second or third time it happened, I advised him, "Don't ever do that again."

    Krichell gave me the hook once more, and this time I scissored my legs, caught him under an arm and almost detached it from his body. The arm was forced back and badly torn at the shoulder. Krichell's career ended right there, after only two major league seasons.

    "I'm sorry about it," I told the St. Louis players, "but I warned him." ('My Life in Baseball - The True Record', by Ty Cobb with Al Stump, 1961, pp. 94.)

    Now that is Cobb's version of the incident. But every story has 2 sides. Here is Paul Krichell's side of it. It appeared in his Sporting News' obituary.

    "Collision With Ty Cobb Left Lasting Impression on Paul"
    New York, N. Y.--Ty Cobb left a lasting impression on Paul Krichell during a game between the Browns and the Tigers in 1911.

    "I was catching for the Browns," Krichell recalled several years ago, "and Cobb came tearing into me at the plate. And when you talk about explosions, that was one. Cobb must have been loaded with TNT.

    "He knocked the ball out of my hand and it hit the grandstand on the fly. I was mad and stunned. He was mad but unshaken. I started cussing him and he had a few choice dirty words that he shouted at me.

    "The next thing I knew we were fighting. It was one of those baseball fights, where more words than blows were exchanged. Billy Evans was the umpire and he had us both fined.

    "In a way, it was really my fault. I was standing in front of the plate instead of on the side, where I could tag Ty as he slid in. But out of that mixup I learned one thing. Never stand directly in front of the plate when Cobb was roaring for home. If you did, it was at your own risk." (Sporting News, June 12, 1957, pp. 28.)

    Whose version was the more accurate? I have no clue. But at least Krichell bore no lasting grudge and even blamed himself for blocking the plate.

    Does anyone have any further information, based on newspaper accounts?

    This photo is often used to show the play that Ty Cobb used to disable Paul Krichell. I doubt if this is the play. Paul is clearly blocking the plate. Standing right in front of it.


    Ty Cobb crashing into catcher Paul Krichell, 1912



    I looked up some newspaper accounts.

    1. Paul Krichell's last MLB game was on September 22, 1912.
    2. The Browns played the Tigers on September 7, 1912, and Krichell and Jimmy Austin were evicted from the game by umpire Silk O'Loughin for disputing a decision. No mention was made of an injury or controversy.
    3. Krichell played a game against the Highlanders on September 10, and had 3 at-bats.
    4. Krichell played in the second game of a double-hitter against the A's on September 22, 1912 but had no at-bats. Maybe he was walked. Another Browns' catcher, Alexander is listed as having taken part.

    Thank you MLB4LYF. Your pleasure is my greatest reward.

    Be sure to check out Ty Cobb/Assorted Historical Topics thread as well as The Cobb Consensus

    The Cobb Consensus took me many, many years of research to compile. I am very proud of it!

    Check them out!
