Heart of a Tiger: Growing Up with My Grandfather

Herschel Cobb, Grandson of Ty Cobb; Author, Heart of a Tiger

Baseball great Ty Cobb’s infamously cold, competitive nature allowed him to excel, but it undermined his relationship with his children. Herschel Cobb’s moving account of his relationship with his legendary grandfather reveals a side of Ty Cobb that few people ever saw. Herschel, whose own childhood was filled with parental turmoil, recounts in this beautifully written memoir how his grandfather provided the stability, love and guidance he desperately needed.
