PERHAPS YOU ARE UNINFORMED- THE HOMETOWN OF TYRUS RAYMOND COBB WAS IN ROYSTON, GA---NEAR ATHENS AND ELBERTON, ROYSTON HAS THE TY COBB MUSEUM THAT HOLD MANY OF HIS COLLECTABLES... THE TOWN WAS GIVEN MONEY BY THE BALL PLAYER TO BUILD A HEATH CARE HOSPITAL THAT STILL BEARS HIS NAME. THE ANSCESTORS OF AMANDA CHITWOOD ARE STILL THERE. TY COBB IS BURIED IN A MOSELEUM IN THE LOCAL CEMETARY. MOST PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY KNEW COBB GOT A GOOD LAUGH AT THE MOVIE "COBB" STARRING TOMMY LEE JONES , BECAUSE IT HARDLY CAPTURED THE CHARECTER OF MR. COBB, WHO IS KNOWN LOCALLY AS A FRIENDLY MAN THAT GAVE MUCH TO HIS COMMUNITY.
