Cobb supposedly went on the trip (the Athletics and Tigers both went) just to make money, and after playing against black players--three of whom out-hit him on the Cuba trip--he was said to have vowed to never play against them again. What an a-hole!

I don't know what to make of this cartoon from the Portsmouth Daily Times, from when the American teams were playing against the Cuban teams, 11/28/1910:

The Red Sox rocked the Pirates today, and play tonight on NESN at 7:ish.
