Royston, Georgia is a little off the beaten path, but baseball history buffs still find a way to check out the life, times and memorabilia of its favorite son.
He wasn’t everyone’s favorite during his playing days–and even after. But there’s no doubt Ty Cobb stands with few peers in baseball history.
He lived a long life and left behind quite a story, to say nothing of the memorabilia that captured his career.
Ten years ago, Royston set out to honor its famous son with a permanent home for artifacts and information surrounding his Hall of Fame career. For five bucks, it’s worth the trip if you’re ever in the south.
