Jack Coombs


Ty Cobb says: “And there is John Coombs, also of the Athletics. Coombs is one of the really great pitchers of the day, or was, because of wonderful speed, a grand curve ball, apparently inexhaustible strength, and a heart of tempered steel. Probably his heart or courage was his greatest asset, for no pinch was ever too tough for him to face and usually master.”
