„To him, a ball game wasn't a mere athletic contest. It was a knock-'em-down, crush-'em, relentless war.“

Context: Ty was an intellectual giant. He was the most fascinating personality I ever met in baseball. To him, a ball game wasn't a mere athletic contest.

Moe Berg, interview in Ty Cobb (1975) by John McCallum, p. xii - <!-- Praeger Publishers -->
