Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker cleared of all charges...

Item # 652746

January 27, 1927

LEOMINSTER DAILY ENTERPRISE, Massachusetts, Jan. 27, 1927

* Ty Cobb and Tris Speaker vindication
* Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis

Page 2 has one column headings: "COBB AND SPEAKER BOTH EXONERATED" "Cleared Of All Charges in Decision by Judge K.M. Landis".
During the 1920's there was an on-going feud between pitcher Dutch Leonard & Ty Cobb, culminating in Leonard going to commissioner Landis & accusing Cobb of being involved in gambling and/or fixing games with Tris Speaker. Ultimately Landis declared both Cobb & Speaker as not guilty.
Ten pages, small piece from right side of the first leaf only not affecting the mentioned article, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally good.
