Augusta, GA

From BR Bullpen

Augusta is located in eastern Georgia, on the Savannah River, which forms the border with South Carolina, 125 miles north-west of Savannah, GA. Ty Cobb was a resident of the city and had the Detroit Tigers make the city their spring training home for five seasons while he was player-manager in the 1920s. The city is best known for being the home of the Augusta National Golf Club where the Masters Golf Tournament is held annually; the name "Green Jackets" comes from the outfit donned by the winner of that prestigious event.
