On August 30th Tyrus Raymond Cobb made his Major League debut with Tigers. Over the next 22 years he would be a fixture in the Tigers lineup setting many different records along the way and earning the reputation as the dirtiest player that ever lived. The Georgia Peach as he was known would sharpen his spikes before each game and slide feet up with the intent of drawing blood from opposing players. Cobb would constantly get in fights with both teammates an opponent and would be the most hated player in baseball. In Cobb's first season the Tigers would improve from a 90-loss season to finish in 3rd Place with a 79-74 record.
