Ty Cobb, one of baseball’s favorite surly characters and one of thebest players in Detroit Tigers history, was nicknamed The Georgia Peach - ironically, of course. Growing up a Tigers fan my brain was filled with Ty Cobb lore early; like how he use to sharpen his cleats so players would learn to get out of his way when he was sliding into second base. I know now there was more of a sinister side to this baseball great, but his faults add depth to his character and interest to his story; strong and uncompromising, hard but loved and respected, born with nothing, and surviving and succeeding with only willpower and talent. Ty Cobb will always be my favorite Tiger and one of my favorite baseball players because of and despite it all.
The Georgia Peach is a bulky weight version of the baseball sweater worn by players 100 years ago. Unusual button placement make it unique and keep you very warm while playing an early season baseball game. Customize it to your team’s colors to show your team spirit while waiting for baseball season to start up again all winter long.
