This is a guy who kicked the crap out of some black hotel worker (i'm paraphrasing this, so I'm probably getting the story wrong) just because he was black. He's a racist, awful human being who had the benefit of being a top five ballplayer. It's this dynamic that makes the book so fascinating: here's a figure that was idolized even though he was such a terrible person.
I always knew that Cobb was a notorious wiener dog, very unpleasant individual.
