1909 Detroit Tigers

Terrific photo via Twitter, courtesy of Just Baseball Photos( @Baseball_Photos ), of the 1908 Detroit Tigers.

Ty Cobb is stting on the far right side, second row.

The 1909  Tigers won their 3rd consecutive American League Pennant, finishing with a 98-54 record under Manager Hughie Jennings.

Ty Cobb had one of the greatest years any big league ballplayer has ever had.

In 156 games in 1909, Cobb led the American League in...

Batting Average...377 Home Runs...9 Runs Batted In..107...

...116 Runs scored, 216 hits, 76 Stolen Bases, a .431 on base %, .517 Slugging %,  and 296 Total bases.

I just love vintage baseball pictures of Cobb's era, 1905-1928.
