Cobb Paperback ☆ Cobb eBook Ð cobb epub, CobbCobb MOBIThe character of controversial baseball legend Ty Cobb is split into three differently aged versions of himself The Peach, aged nineteen, at the beginning of his long career with the Detroit Tigers Ty, in his early forties, at the end of his playing days and Mr Cobb, in his early seventies, at the point of death from cancer The play floats freely in time, moving back and forth among the Cobbs as they contend with each other, and the audience, over whom Ty Cobb really was and what he represented Invading this self imposed argument in limbo is Oscar Charleston, a black player of Cobb s time who, though relegated to the Negro Leagues, was dubbed the Black Cobb by the white press Ty tries to avoid Charleston just as he always avoided playing exhibition games against him or any other black players As Cobb fights both popular opinion, and himself, to justify his life, Charleston provides a deeper challenge to his self esteem Ultimately we come to know Cobb in his full complexity as a sports hero of the highest order, fulfilling one of America s most cherished dreams, and as an example of some of its greatest failures.
