Ty Cobb on Ty Cobb: "Many fans have asked me why I always swing three bats. Originally it was my intention to make the one bat feel lighter when I went to the plate, and this practice has developed the muscles of my shoulders and back wonderfully, because the three sticks weigh approximately one hundred and twenty ounces. But I have had great luck in hitting while swinging three bats, and I would not give it up now at any price. Aside from the superstition of it, I believe the juggling of three bats, while waiting for my turn, has done me a lot of good, since it has developed me from a rather slight build to a player who is very strong in the back and arms, which strength enables me to drive the ball.”
