"Baseball"

"When Ty Cobb got on first base he had an apparently nervous habit of kicking the bag. ... By kicking the bag hard enough Cobb could move it a full two inches closer to second base. He figured that this improved his chances for a steal, or for reaching second base safely on a hit." - Norman Vincent Peale


Mr. Cobb held the record for most career stolen bases (892) until 1977. He still holds the career record for stealing home (54 times). My Dad used to tell me stories about him when I was a little kid... I'll never forget that.
