INSIDE BASEBALL and Cobb takes you through the truth of his childhood days, his parental opposition to baseball, his breaking into the minor league in Augusta,Ga., his entry into the Major Leagues and his experiences with the big league greats, and his opinion on the advantages and fundamentals of playing all the different positions on the team. Cobb talks of what made him so successful in baseball, he talks of how to stay in condition, sleeping and eating, he tells how he treated umpires, he talks of how to bat under most conditions and he tells how to throw and run the bases properly. His chapter on what constitutes a star ball player truly epitomizes the psychology of the times. The book is available now in perfect bound paperback from www.insidebaseball.org. Wesley Fricks is an avid baseball researcher who has set out to restore Ty Cobb s reputation to its original state. He serves on the TY COBB Museum Advisory Board and he volunteers as the Museum's off-site historian.

History with the TY COBB Museum John Wesley Fricks was born in Atlanta in 1971 and moved to Royston, Georgia in 1975. He grew up on COBB St., one block away from the old COBB home place. He got involved on the ground floor of the creation of the TY COBB Museum in January 1998. Wesley worked six months with Museum Director and Planning and Development Committee to establish this memorial to baseball s most celebrated athlete. He was one of three featured speakers at the opening ceremonies on July 17th along with Phil Neikro and the TY COBB Healthcare System, Chairman of the Board. It was the year Neikro was inducted into baseball s Hall of Fame. Since the opening of the Museum, he has been a vital member of the TY COBB Museum Advisory Board, which serves to continually upgrade and enhance the exhibits inside the Museum. Just last year, the TY COBB Educational Foundation was celebrating fifty years of giving scholarships to needy Georgia students. They were interested in getting a display in our Museum. Wesley was asked to work with a team to provide this outlet for the TCEF to get some exposure. He was asked to write a video script with only three days to get it done. He scored and scored big with his creation of the TCEF DVD video that is a wonderful addition to the Museum. Wesley was the keynote speaker at the Museum s October 2003 unveiling of the TCEF display. He also designed the baseball card that was released on the same day. His contribution to the TY COBB Museum has been tireless and energetic. Wesley has been a pillar of strength for TY COBB s legacy over the last decade, participating in baseball symposiums, television shows, and other special events. Wesley was invited by Major League Baseball Productions for an interview at Turner Field in Atlanta to be on Baseball s All-Century Team video in 1999. He was interviewed again at Turner Field in 2002 for Turner South s Liars & Legends show that featured TY COBB. Wesley has been an excellent historical reference for a number of visitors who contact the Museum for additional information about TY COBB. His professionalism and knowledge of Ty Cobb and of baseball during that era has proved to be a valuable resource to the TY COBB Museum. - TY COBB MuseumReview:
