September 25, 2015 – It’s History in Five Friday, presented by Simon & Schuster — kicking off your modern weekend, with people from the past. Today, we offer up Charles Leerhsen’s incredible book: Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty.

You can enjoy our full interview on or after Monday, September 28, 2015. For more, follow our H5F author on Twitter @CharlesLeerhsen or visit his website, CharlesLeerhsen.com.
