Personal Quote:

Most of all I was saddling that team with a psychological burden so that they would be muttering, 'Cobb is crazy. He'll run anytime and in any situation.' It would help give them the jitters and they'd concentrate so much on me they were not paying any attention to the business at hand. My failures rarely were complete failures. They were more like future investments. See more »


In 1909, he used his earnings from that year's World Series to invest in a copper mine in Bisbee, Arizona. He bought stock in the mine for $3 per share, and later sold his interest for $1,000 per share. In an era when the best players were earning $6,000 per year, he was worth in excess of $300,000.
