Something Like a War

There are few less likable people than Ty Cobb, yet he was beautiful on the baseball field. I was reminded of this photo upon my annual winter re-watching of Ken Burns’ Baseball. It is an amazing fact that this photo, taken about one hundred years ago, remains as one of the the finest baseball photos ever taken. It makes you wonder if today’s photographers or today’s players are the difference.

This is a perfect baseball photograph.
