"Ty Cobb and the Great American Pastime"

Sunday, November 11 at The Drama Circle

ATHOL — "Ty Cobb and the Great American Pastime" by Michael Riccards is the featured play to be read at the Drama Circle on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. at AOTV- Community Television, 163 South Main St.

Some claim that when Ty Cobb played the game of baseball, he played the game the correct way. He played to win and to be the best that he could be, though there weren't big cash incentive as there are today.

Born in 1886 in Georgia, known as the Georgia Peach, Cobb was an American Major League outfielder who spent 22 seasons with the Detroit Tigers, the last six as the team's player manager, and finished his career with the Philadelphia Athletics. In 1936 Cobb received the most votes of any player on the inaugural Baseball Hall of Fame ballot. In 1999, editors at the Sporting News ranked Ty Cobb third on their list of "Baseball's 100 Greatest Players." Yet, despite his success, Cobb was a complex man who had his share of inner demons.  Michael Richards play on Ty Cobb explores the inner man behind that fame, a man many consider to be the most competitive and complex personality ever to appear in a big league uniform.

The Drama Circle is free and open to the public. Readers and audience members are always welcome. For Further information, contact Genevieve Fraser at 978-544-1872 or email: FraserGenevieve@gmail.com.
