An interview with Ty Cobb

This is a cool little find that I happened to come across this morning.  In 1930, a little over a year after he retired from baseball, Ty Cobb gave an interview with Grantland Rice.  He was 43 years old at the time of this interview, reflecting on his career and the players he faced.  He also talks about his conditioning, the differences between baseball in his time and the current game (in 1930), and his predictions for the future.
