This is a wonderful museum highlighting the career and life of Ty Cobb also known as the Georgia Peach. Best known as the first inductee to Baseball's Hall of Fame, Ty Cobb lead a career in baseball that will unlikely be matched, even by today's standards. The short movie is well done and there is a small but nice gift shop for those who like memorabilia. It's worth a stop!
